North American Energy Dialogue

The energy markets of Canada, the United States, and Mexico are becoming increasingly interdependent as physical infrastructure and commodities trade continues to grow across North America.

The University of Alberta, the University of Texas at Austin, and the Tecnologico de Monterrey, are leading research-intensive universities in their respective countries, each possessing strong energy focused expertise.

The three universities are uniquely positioned to create a platform that enables discussion and analysis on energy policy, through a North American perspective.
