RFF Initiative

North American Energy Opportunities

RFF experts are working with international partners to explore the potential for trinational coordination of energy policies and markets.

Energy production in Canada, Mexico, and the United States is evolving rapidly, providing the continent with an opportunity to reap both economic and environmental benefits from potential tri-national coordination of energy and climate policies. RFF experts, in partnership with the the Instituto Technológico Autónomo de Mexico in Mexico and the International Institute for Sustainable Development in Canada, are exploring a number of issues, including onshore oil and gas regulations, enhanced integration of the electricity grid and competitive wholesale power markets, options for coordinated action on climate change, and fossil energy export strategies.
