When Mark Twain reportedly observed that history does not repeat itself, but if often rhymes, he may have been speaking about the state of the fuel supply situation in New England.  Recent events and price shocks have drawn renewed attention to the uncomfortable reality facing the region: it is energy-insecure during extreme weather conditions.  This vulnerability is a feature, not a bug, as these challenges have been the subject of numerous stakeholder discussions, meetings and proposals for over a decade.  Now, with Winter 2022-2023 only a few months away, and with several of the region’s states pursuing ambitious decarbonization goals, curtailments and service interruptions are no longer remote possibilities.  Join us on Thursday, September 29, 2022, at the NECA Fuels Conference, for an informative and engaging discussion with industry experts and representatives for their perspectives on the current situation, and what it means for the region for both this winter, as well as for the future.
