Pursuing U.S.-Canada Grid Integration

Greater integration among regional power grids would lower electric sector emissions and power costs across eastern Canada and the northeastern United States, but coordination today is limited. Why this coordination hasn’t happened, and what can be done to make it happen, are important questions for regional decarbonization. Over the course of 2020, RAP partnered with the Transition Accelerator and Raab Associates to interview key policymakers and stakeholders and find out the extent of interest in pursuing deeper regional integration. The resulting report finds that there is strong support on both sides of the border for a collaborative process.
