Northeast Energy Cooperation
The history, terrain and economies of the Northeast region is interconnected.
The vision of sharing information, issues and solving challenges continues to this day. From an energy perspective, creating a framework to access diverse energy sources through pipelines and robust transmission lines makes sense.
The objective of this cooperative approach is to bring both economic and environmental benefits to both countries and the people residing in New England and the Maritime provinces.
Securing our region’s supply of reliable and clean energy, attracting investment, and creating economic development opportunities is a priority for us all. Doing so will increase the security and reliability, and reduce the environmental footprint of our energy supply.
The State of Maine and the Province of New Brunswick have signed cooperation agreements and are working to secure stable supplies of natural gas and electricity for their regions via pipelines and electrical transmission.
Both regions agree that stable, clean and affordable energy will serve as a vital foundation to further attract economic investment in the region.
