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 Annual Conference will be held Nov. 1-2, 2018 - please save the dates! 

The November 2017 conference - our 25th anniversary event - included:

  •  A keynote address by the Hon. Bardish Chagger, Leader of the Government in the House of Commons and Canada’s Minister of Small Business and Tourism;
  •  Updates on regional energy market developments, including the Massachusetts “clean energy RFP”;
  •  Industry leader perspectives on infrastructure and investment opportunities and challenges;
  •  Clean energy technology innovations and new market entries;
  •  A look back on what has worked – and what hasn’t – in energy markets over the last 25 years; and
  •  A tribute to the founder of this event, Fred Nemergut, as we marked the conference’s 25th anniversary.

As Prime Minister Justin Trudeau observed in a 2017 speech in Houston:

"Nothing is more essential to the U.S. economy than access to a secure, reliable source of energy. Canada is that source."

We hope you can join us in early November 2018 for our next annual event!
