The global energy industry has explored many options to meet the growing energy needs of industrialized economies wherein production demands are to be met with supply of power from varied energy resources worldwide. There has been a clearer realization of the finite nature of oil resources and the ever higher pushing demand for energy. The world has yet to stabilize on the complex geopolitical undercurrents which influence the oil and gas production as well as supply strategies globally.

Aruvian's R'search’s report – Analyzing the Energy Industry in Canada - analyzes the scope of Canadian energy production from varied traditional sources as well as the developing renewable energy sources. In view of understanding energy transactions, the report also studies the revenue returns for investors in various energy channels which manifest themselves in Canadian energy demand and supply dynamics.

In depth view has been provided in this report of Canadian oil, electricity, natural gas, nuclear power, coal, wind, and hydroelectric sectors. The various geopolitical interests and intentions governing the exploitation, production, trade and supply of these resources for energy production has also been analyzed by this report in a non-partisan manner. Case studies included in the report highlight the importance of the Athabasca Oil Sands and the regional energy industry of Alberta.

A profile of the top players in the Canadian energy industry, a Michael Porter’s Five Forces Strategy Analysis of the industry, along with a PEST Framework analysis, completes This analysis of the Canadian energy industry.
