NECA enables a community of professionals and organizations active in the Northeast energy industries to share knowledge, build relationships and collaborate on opportunities and challenges created by evolving markets, technological innovation, public policies, and climate change.


Founded in 1985 to foster the development and maturation of competitive power markets, NECA’s purpose has expanded over time and now serves as an open forum among all stakeholders with a full range of energy and environmental interests, including traditional and renewable electric generation, natural gas and other fuels, and energy efficiency.

NECA supports environmentally sound, reliable and cost-effective wholesale and retail markets for the production and delivery of electric power supply, as well as competing energy services and resources alternatives, including conservation, innovative demand-side and power delivery technologies, renewable energy and distributed generation.

NECA’s 1250 members, representing over 110 entities, include developers and owner/operators of competitive power projects, regulated and merchant transmission and distribution companies, gas pipeline companies, power marketers and traders, fuel and equipment supplies, end users and various service providers to the energy industry, including law firms, investment bankers, environmental engineering and economic consulting firms.

Through its regular series of events throughout the year, NECA serves as a clearinghouse of cutting-edge industry information. These events include meetings devoted to a single topic and three day-long meetings each addressing an energy issue: fuels, power markets, and renewable energy. We also hold an annual holiday networking event,. Our successful Energy 101 seminar series rotates among gas, electricity, finance and environment. Finally, NECA’s premier event is its two-day conference and exposition held each spring highlighting all of the major industry developments in the region. Even in the midst of COVID-19, NECA has successfully pivoted by holding weekly webcasts on a variety of topics and will move forward with a virtual 101 series and half-day events addressing fuels and power markets topics. There is no shortage of material to cover!
