The United States and Canada share the largest and most robust bilateral trading relationship in the world, with Canada acting as the single largest non-domestic supplier of energy to the U.S.  Both countries have been particularly active in the Northeast to advance the energy trade relationship, and are working to build new transmission ties to advance grid reliability and help meet anticipated capacity gaps and clean energy goals in New England.  The state of Massachusetts has even gone so far as to mandate legislation for utilities to contract for 1,200 MW of imported hydroelectricity, and other New England states are evaluating similar policies.

EUCI’s 4th Annual U.S./Canada Cross-Border Energy Trade Summit will examine New England’s generation portfolio and resource planning needs, evaluating the pros and cons of increased Canadian hydropower in the regions’ future power supply mix.  This collaborative, interactive forum will allow stakeholders to hear from — and engage with — key industry and policy-maker experts on best strategies to optimize future U.S./Canada cross-border energy trade and practices.   Discussions will focus on how to balance state-mandated procurements for Canadian hydropower with the often-conflicting needs of competitive market practices, environmental compliance, and economic growth in a cross-border energy context.
