Northeast and Mid-Atlantic States Meeting on Clean Energy Cooperation

Related: Climate Change

In 2008, Meridian facilitated a two-day meeting of leaders from state executive offices, energy agencies, and public utility commissions from the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic states that focused on identifying opportunities to advance regional cooperation on clean energy. The meeting was hosted by New York Governor David Paterson and attended by both Paterson and New Jersey Governor Jon Corzine.


At the meeting, the states agreed to pursue collaboration on state/federal relations on clean energy and climate change policy; undertake joint efforts to address ocean energy issues; tap the potential of bioenergy; and build a stronger regional renewable energy market in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic region.
