The recent boom in unconventional energy production has been transforming the energy landscape in North America, with important implications for global energy markets and broader competitiveness outlook.
In parallel, and linked to a large extent to the energy boom, important but divergent trends in manufacturing have been emerging in the region.
This book, within a unifying framework, tells the story of the energy-manufacturing nexus from the perspective of the United States, Canada, and Mexico, and of the region as a whole, which produces nearly a quarter of the world's energy.
This timely volume also looks at the North American perspective on the energy-manufacturing linkages.
Using model simulations, the authors look at how the changing energy landscape can affect the potential benefits of greater integration across the three North American economies.
The volume concludes with a policy perspective on the North American energy relationships and prospects for collaboration.
