The Northeast region of North America faces challenges due to its colder northern climate, and its rural, sparsely populated areas. It is fortunate, however to also have access to natural sources of energy such as the sun, wind, and tides.
The region has capitalized on its access to deep-water ocean harbours, pipeline infrastructure, and proximity to larger populations to the south.
The region has the largest oil refinery in Canada, the only LNG marine terminal in Canada, a nuclear power generating station, other electrical generation from oil, natural gas, co-generation plants, and developing technologies in geothermal, hydrogen and bioenergy. This is in addition to a growing number of wind farms and power generated by hydro.
