Officials from Canada, Mexico, and the United States recently established the North American Cooperation on Energy Information, which aims to improve data regarding energy trade, enhance energy infrastructure and geospatial information, share projections of cross-border energy flows, and create a cross reference for terminology across North American energy sectors.
RFF experts have explored a number of issues regarding the rapid evolution of energy and climate policies in Canada, Mexico, and the United States:
- Two RFF/US Department of Energy Workshops gave rise to a number of recommendations on harmonizing the electricity sectors across North America.
- Researchers from RFF, Canada, and Mexico reviewed more than 60 environmental regulations to understand their effects on sustainable development of oil and gas in North America.
- RFF’s Raymond J. Kopp and Alan J. Krupnick discuss the role of governments in, and benefits of, an integrated North American energy strategy.
