Energy Trade & Technology Conference










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.

 Our next conference will be Nov. 8-9, 2017 in Boston. It will be our 25th annual event.

 This major international conference addresses such topics as clean/renewable energy initiatives, cross-border electricity, natural gas, and oil supply developments and infrastructure projects, efficiency investments, technology innovations, environmental agreements, and the future outlook.

  Energy trade between our two regions remains significant and essential, with mutual benefits for each country in terms of economic development, energy security and environmental sustainability.  And trade, in clean energy projects and in enhanced delivery infrastructure, is expected to expand considerably in the coming years.

The 2016 conference was a great success - the full list of 2016 speakers and sponsors can be found in the pdf below.

We hope you can join us in November 2017 for our 25th annual event!
