North America’s Energy Market: Aligning Policies and Managing Carbon

On 24 March, industry leaders and experts explored issues related to public energy policies and regional energy markets.

As an illustration of the conflicts that can arise when public policy is not coordinated between countries, a discussion panel reviewed the restrictions in place in the US state of California as they relate to the definition of renewable energy which would limit the export market for certain types of hydroelectric power from the province of British Columbia.

An afternoon panel focused on the opportunities and challenges for carbon capture and storage in North America.
