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 27th annual conference will be held on November 20-21, 2019 at the Seaport Hotel in Boston.

The NECBC is delighted to note that former FERC Commissioner (and former Chair) Cheryl LaFleur will be the keynote speaker on November 20. And James Robb, President & CEO of NERC, will be the concluding keynote speaker on November 21. Among the other confirmed speakers for the November event are: David Hang of Orsted U.S. Offshore Wind; Karen Iampen of Repsol; James Judge of Eversource; Leonard Kula of the Ontario IESO; Eric Martel of Hydro-Quebec; Ian Robertson of Algonquin Power & Utilities Corp.; James Torgerson of Avangrid; Elizabeth Turnbull Henry of the Environmental League of Massachusetts; Gordon van Welie of ISO-NE; Rudy Wynter of National Grid; and many more!  

This year’s conference will address common challenges and areas of mutual interest in our strategic U.S.-Canada energy and environmental relationship, including:

  •  Electricity supply and demand developments, new and diverse resource integration, and the future of cross-border hydro power connectivity;
  •  Current status and outlook for expanding offshore wind projects and their impacts on the Northeast power grid;
  •  The future of natural gas and LNG and gas transmission infrastructure in the Northeast;
  •  The impact of new technologies such as energy storage, electric vehicles, advanced energy efficiency, and peak demand management on power grid reliability and consumer energy costs;
