MIT, Ouranos and HEC Montréal Launch Initiative to Analyze Low-Carbon Energy Policy Options for New England/Québec Region
This new collaboration on energy, economy and climate policy analysis is aiming to equip decision-makers in the New England/Québec region with the knowledge they’ll need to evaluate cross-border, low-carbon energy and climate policy options.
Convened during the Conference of New England Governors and Eastern Canadian Premiers, the ceremony featured remarks by representatives of all three signatories, including MIT Vice President for Research Maria Zuber on behalf of the Joint Program; by Éric Martel, president and CEO of Hydro-Québec, a state-owned electricity supplier and one of the world leading producers of hydropower; and by Québec Premier Philippe Couillard.
Hydro-Québec will provide a total of CA$ 100,000 over two years to the reserach project.
