The North American continent of Canada, the United States, and Mexico represents three of the most productive, diverse, and interdependent economies in the world. In energy systems, however, these nations still lack integration in critical risk areas: infrastructure, reserves, operations, standards that imposes costs, performance and security factors that affect GDP, as well as labour and financial markets. Risks could be mitigated through closer cooperative energy systems planning and interdependence.
In this segment of the ERGP’s Energy and Environment Series, we explore the current and future energy challenges facing North America and discuss how a tri-national carbon trading exchange has the potential to transform energy development and environment, create a more resilient energy sector, and set a global example as a leading decarbonized region.
