Countries Collaborate on Energy Data
North American countries are sharing data online
Officials from the United States, Canada and Mexico recently collaborated to launch a website (nacei.org) that features energy-related data, maps, analyses and references from the three countries.
The “North American Cooperation on Energy Information” website is part of a collaborative effort to share publicly available materials to improve energy information and energy outlooks for North America.
“Collaboration among the three countries has already improved data quality for some data series,” the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) said.
Canada and Mexico are key energy trade partners with the United States, with Canada being our largest energy trading partner, according to EIA analysis of U.S. Census Bureau data. Energy accounted for about 5 percent of the value of all U.S. exports to Canada and more than 19 percent of the value of all U.S. imports from Canada in 2016. The value of U.S. energy imports from Canada was $53 billion in 2016, while the value of U.S. energy exports to Canada was $14 billion.
