The NECBC's "New England-Canada Energy Conference" - held annually in Boston - focuses on all sectors of energy trade and cooperation between the Northeast U.S. and its largest energy partner, Canada. The forum brings together Canadian and American senior executives, policy makers, regulators and energy experts who will provide their perspectives, share knowledge and explore a wide range of topics.
Topics include clean/renewable energy initiatives, cross-border electricity, natural gas, and oil supply developments and infrastructure projects, technology innovations, and the future outlook.
This year's conference will be held Wed.-Thurs., November 16-17, 2016, at the Seaport Hotel in Boston, MA. The theme of this year's conference is: "How Best to Implement A Balanced Regional Energy Policy -- Dealing with Climate, Energy Infrastructure, Supply and Economic Growth."
Sponsorship registration is underway (see pdf brochure above). Look for further information on the preliminary program this summer.
Over 250 people registered for the Nov. 2015 event, which featured discussions on multiple energy projects and market issues. It was a great success – informative and timely. The NECBC was honored in 2015 to have keynote addresses provided by Governor Paul LePage of Maine and Premier Philippe Couillard of Quebec.
