Electricity – Imports and Exports

Electricity – Imports and Exports Companies importing and exporting electricity hold regulatory authorization from the CER and are required to report their export/import activities each month. Generated electricity not consumed domestically is exported. Electricity trade with United States is affected by prices, weather, power-line infrastructure and regional supply and demand. All these cause trade to vary from year to year. Canada also imports some electricity from the United States. The integrated Canada-US power grid allows for bi-directional flows to help meet fluctuating regional supply and demand. This dataset provides historical import and export volumes, values, and prices (by year and month) broken out by source and destination. 2022-04-01 Canada Energy Regulator open-ouvert@tbs-sct.gc.ca Economics and IndustryelectricityimportsexportsCERNEB electricity-exports-and-imports-monthlyCSV https://www.cer-rec.gc.ca/open/imports-exports/electricity-exports-and-imports-monthly.csv electricity-exports-and-imports-monthlyCSV https://www.cer-rec.gc.ca/ouvert/importations-exportations/electricite-exportations-et-importations-par-mois.csv electricity-exports-and-imports-annualCSV https://www.cer-rec.gc.ca/open/imports-exports/electricity-exports-and-imports-annual.csv electricity-exports-and-imports-annualCSV https://www.cer-rec.gc.ca/ouvert/importations-exportations/electricite-exportations-et-importations-par-annee.csv electricity-exports-and-imports-data-dictionaryCSV https://www.cer-rec.gc.ca/open/imports-exports/electricity-exports-and-imports-data-dictionary.csv electricity-exports-and-imports-data-dictionaryCSV https://www.cer-rec.gc.ca/ouvert/importations-exportations/electricite-exportations-et-importations-dictionnaire-de-donnees.csv
