The goal of this presentation is to provide a mid-term framework for examining some of the issues confronting the coal industry that will be discussed during this symposium.

The projections in the Annual Energy Outlook are based on the National Energy Modeling System--NEMS, a large-scale integrated energy model that EIA developed in the 1992-1993 period. NEMS provides detailed projections of energy supply, demand, and prices of all major energy sources through 2020. Its integrated structure permits the development of baseline and scenario forecasts that are can be used to examine the impacts of government policy on a wide-range of issues.
