The Office of Electricity Delivery and Energy Reliability has released the Regulatory Side-by-Side Governing Permitting of Cross-Border Electricity Transmission Facilities between the United States and Canada, which presents a series of side-by-side tables that describe the U.S. and Canadian regulatory and statutory requirements necessary to site, permit, and construct transmission facilities at the U.S. - Canada border. It is intended to function as a reference document that can be used by government officials, potential developers, and other stakeholders as a means to understand the permitting requirements in both countries.

On September 18, 2014, Secretary of Energy Ernest Moniz and Canada's Minister of Natural Resources Greg Rickford signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) that builds from the work of the Clean Energy Dialogue that was launched in February 2009. In the MOU, the two agencies agreed to complete activities that would lead to 'enhancing understanding of cross-border permitting regimes for electric transmission facilities'. The Regulatory Side-by-Side Governing Permitting of Cross-Border Electricity Transmission Facilities between the United States and Canada document completes that requirement of the MOU.
