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.
Please save the dates for our next conference: Nov. 8-9, 2017 in Boston.
It will be our 25th annual event.
The most recent conference was held November 16-17, 2016, at the Seaport Hotel in Boston, MA. Over 200 people registered. The theme of the conference was: "How Best to Implement A Balanced Regional Energy Policy -- Dealing with Climate, Energy Infrastructure, Supply and Economic Growth."
Topics included clean/renewable energy initiatives, cross-border electricity, natural gas, and oil supply developments and infrastructure projects, technology innovations, environmental agreements, and the future outlook (including the potential impact of the fall 2016 U.S.election).
The opening keynote speaker on November 16 was Eric Martel, president and CEO of Hydro-Quebec, and the Thursday opening keynote speaker was James Judge, president and CEO of Eversource.
