North America Network


Robert Hanf, Vice-Chair

The North America region, which consists of three countries: United States of America, Canada and Mexico, has been playing a key role in the studies activities regarding cleaner fossil fuel systems, carbon capturing, utilisation and storage (CCS/CCUS), performance of generating plants, unconventional fuel resources, survey of energy resources and technologies, energy policy trilemma issues, and energy scenarios.

The region has also addressed their countries’ unique issues and challenges at energy forums and workshops focusing on topics such as, replacement of nuclear, regulation on CCS technology, smart energy policies, energy efficiency with advanced technologies, and trade issues.

The region organises the World Energy Council official regional forum, the North America-Latin America bi-regional forum which addresses energy efficiency, energy conservation, alternative energies, energy transport and fossil fuels issues.
