The North American Energy Markets Association
The North American Energy Markets Association (NAEMA) is an independent, nonprofit trade association representing entities involved in the buying and selling of energy or in providing services to the energy industry. Members work together to promote an informed, efficient and open energy marketplace throughout North America. NAEMA has over 140 members with operations in 48 states and numerous Canadian provinces. NAEMA members own and operate over 700,000 megawatts of generating capacity and serve over 150 million electric and gas customers.
NAEMA’s roots reach back to the Mid-Continent Area Power Pool (MAPP) Power and Energy Market (PEM) which was established by the Mid-Continent Area Power Pool members in 1996. In 2003, the PEM unbundled from MAPP and changed its name to the Mid-Continent Energy Marketers Association (MEMA). In 2011, recognizing that NAEMA had significantly outgrown the Mid-Continent area, NAEMA changed its name to the North American Energy Markets Association.
