FERC to Convene New England Winter Gas-Electric Forum in June in Maine

March 20, 2023

On February 16, FERC Chairman Willie Phillips announced that the Commission will convene a second New England Winter Gas-Electric Forum on June 20, 2023, in Portland, Maine.

This meeting, a follow-up on last September's New England Winter Gas-Electric Forum, will focus on what Phillips says is the Commission's primary job: ensuring reliability of the grid to continue safe and secure delivery of energy services to consumers.

Chairman Phillips said: "Reliability is Job No. 1. Each winter, natural gas supply constraints during extreme weather places the New England electric grid and its nearly 15 million residents at risk for rolling blackouts," Phillips said. "I believe addressing this risk is urgent and I am hopeful that we can continue the productive discussions from the last forum as we shift our focus to having stakeholders propose potential solutions to address the winter reliability challenges in the region."
