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. Our 2020 annual conference was held November 12-13, 2020 as a webinar.

We had a tremendous lineup of speakers and moderators to address a range of current issues, from renewables and new technologies to grid modernization and meeting the climate challenge.  Thanks to all participants, speakers and sponsors for helping create a successful virtual event.
