Recap of the 2018 Conference of New England Governors and Eastern Canadian Premiers (NEG/ECP) in Stowe, Vermont.
Governor Phil Scott of Vermont hosted this 42 nd annual conference of New England Governors & Eastern Canadian Premiers. In the Northeast US and Eastern Canada, the Governors and Premiers of these states and provinces recognize their significant relationships and value their mutual connections with respect to energy, trade, and the environment.  Session topics at this conference focused on energy storage, electric vehicle innovation, and trade in the region with attention on shaping the region’s future relationship. A special thanks to all the speakers for sharing their expertise on these important regional issues.
