tc energy - Answering the Energy Security Challenge - A Vision of North American Energy

“It’s really important to think about […] energy transition and energy security, what does that really mean for about 40% of the world population.”

– Julia Nesheiwat

“The importance of energy abundance and affordability and reliability is absolutely essential for every human being on the planet and that’s what one of our top goals should be in public policy – to make sure people have access to energy.”

— T.H. Bernard McNamee

Key takeaways & next steps:

  • Energy security is vital for economic growth, quality of life, and national safety. The interconnected energy markets of Canada, the U.S., and Mexico play a pivotal role in ensuring North America’s energy security.
  • Liquefied natural gas (LNG) exports have transformed North America from a net energy importer to an exporter, boosting the economy and stabilizing the energy sector.
  • TC Energy’s North American energy integration vision rests on three principles: partnerships, energy solutions, and global resource access. These principles harmonize regulations, meet energy demands, and reduce reliance on single sources.
  • North America’s abundant energy resources (natural gas, nuclear, renewables) can positively impact global energy dynamics. Exporting these resources and technology can alleviate energy scarcity and diversify resources globally.
