Market Snapshot: 300th Special Edition – Explore over 5 years’ worth of Snapshots by topic
Release date: 2020-09-02
Today, the Canada Energy Regulator (CER) reaches a milestone with the release of our 300th Market Snapshot. These weekly publications are a cornerstone of the energy information we provide to Canadians. Energy Information, alongside Energy Adjudication, Safety and Environment Oversight, and Engagement, is 1 of the CER’s 4 core responsibilities.
In its weekly Snapshots, the CER’s market and supply analysts explore topical energy trends relevant to Canadians. Since October 2014, Snapshots have been growing in popularity, with web traffic increasing at an average annualized rate of 4% every year. Some snapshots are vastly more viewed than others.
