Attorney General Martha Coakley said Wednesday she plans to convene a summit to discuss ways of controlling high energy costs that threaten the ability of Massachusetts' industries to compete with other regions.


Massachusetts has the nation's fifth highest overall energy costs, including electricity and heating, Coakley said in a speech to the Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce, but the state's industrial sector pays more than in any other part of the country.


"Energy costs play a crucial role for business decisions to come here, to grow here and to compete here," Coakley told the business leaders who gathered on the coldest morning so far this winter. Scissors-32x32.png
