The agreement, signed by the Hon. Sergio Marchi, President and CEO of CEA, and Jamie de la Rosa, President of the AME, will deepen the two associations’ collaboration on issues of shared importance such as physical interconnections, regulatory frameworks, security strategies and climate change action, as well as provide an avenue to explore business and investment opportunities.
“CEA very much looks forward to working with AME to increase the integration of our North American energy system and continuously improve the reliability, sustainability and affordability of our electricity network,” said Marchi. “We face global and regional challenges that require international partnerships, in an effort to develop joint solutions and build the clean energy systems required to power the economy of tomorrow.”
This agreement, in conjunction with CEA’s existing relationships with U.S. electricity trade associations, will facilitate continent wide collaboration in electricity generation, transmission and distribution.
