Canada, Mexico, United States launch North American Cooperation on Energy Information Site

The Energy Minister and Secretaries from Canada, Mexico, and the United States are launching a framework for sharing energy information for North America, hosted at The website can be displayed in English, French, and Spanish and has links to all three countries’ energy statistical agencies. The current areas of focus include:

  • Comparing, validating, and improving respective energy import and export information
  • Sharing publicly available geospatial information related to energy infrastructure
  • Exchanging views and information on projections of cross-border energy flows
  • Harmonizing terminology, concepts, and definitions of energy products

The United States section links to a page on EIA’s beta website specifically focused on the goals of the trilateral, with public information on trade statistics, static and interactive maps, results of a trilateral energy outlook project that applied common assumptions within the modeling frameworks used by each country, and a cross reference for energy terminology in all three languages.

Canada, Mexico, and the United States plan to convene working groups to validate trade statistics for liquid fuels, natural gas, and electricity, as well as to work to reconcile trade data discrepancies. The working groups will continue validation of geographic information system (GIS) data and will expand energy infrastructure maps to include additional elements and functionality. The three countries will also maintain regular consultations on outlooks for energy markets.

The primary participating agencies include the Department of Natural Resources, Statistics Canada, and the National Energy Board from Canada; the Secretaría de Energía (SENER) (Secretariat of Energy), Comisión Reguladora de Energía, Comisión Nacional de Hidrocarburos, Petróleos Mexicanos, Comisión Federal de Electricidad, Centro Nacional de Control de Gas Natural, Centro Nacional de Control de Energía, and the Instituto Nacional de Estadística y Geografía (INEGI) (National Institute of Statistics and Geography) from Mexico; and the U.S. Energy Information Administration and Office of Fossil Energy of the U.S. Department of Energy and the U.S. Census Bureau from the United States.
