Geographically, Canada is positioned in a manner wherein it has access to all the major sources of energy such as oil and natural gas, coal, hydropower, geothermal, marine energy, biomass, as well as nuclear. The country has huge resources of uranium and is the second biggest uranium producer in the world. Canada is also the third largest hydroelectricity producer in the world as well as a big producer of natural gas.

The report - Analyzing the Energy Industry in Canada 2016 - 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.
