Contrary to conventional wisdom, the largest supplier of energy to the United States isn’t located in the Middle East, but right next door in Canada. Consistently ranking as one of the world’s top 10 energy producers, Canada exported $111 billion in energy products last year, including oil, natural gas, uranium, and electricity – with 98% of those exports directed to US consumers and refineries.

Maine International Trade Center (MITC) will host a half-day program – the latest in a series of conversations – about the changing face of Canada’s energy production.

Exactly how Canada’s changing energy landscape will effect Maine is unclear, but it is certain that major changes are on the horizon. Join us to learn what opportunities exist – not only for lower cost energy for Maine’s business and residential consumers, but also for industry suppliers and logistics providers.
