Annual Energy Outlook 1999 with Projections to 2020   [open pdf - 2MB]

"The Annual Energy Outlook 1999 (AEO99) presents midterm forecasts of energy supply, demand, and prices through 2020 prepared by the Energy Information Administration (EIA). The projections are based on results from EIA's National Energy Modeling System (NEMS). The report begins with an 'Overview' summarizing the AEO99 reference case. The next section, 'Legislation and Regulations,' describes the assumptions made with regard to laws that affect energy markets and discusses evolving legislative and regulatory issues. 'Issues in Focus' discusses current energy issues--the economic decline in East Asia, growth in demand for natural gas, vehicle emissions standards, competitive electricity pricing, renewable portfolio standards, and carbon emissions. It is followed by the analysis of energy market trends. The analysis in AEO99 focuses primarily on a reference case and four other cases that assume higher and lower economic growth and higher and lower world oil prices than in the reference case. Forecast tables for these cases are provided in Appendixes A through C. Appendixes D and E present a summary of the reference case forecasts in units of oil equivalence and household energy expenditures. Other cases explore the impacts of varying key assumptions in NEMS--generally, technology penetration. The major results are shown in Appendix F. Appendix G briefly describes NEMS and the AEO99assumptions, with a summary table of the cases. Appendix H provides tables of energy and metric conversion factors."
