Dear Customer

The AEO Supplementary files contain tables that were generated for the Reference case of the Annual Energy Outlook 1996 (AEO96), using the National Energy Modeling System, a computer-based model which produces annual 
projections of energy markets for 1994 to 2015. Most of the tables in the files were not published in the AEO96, but contain regional and other more detailed projections underlying the AEO96 projections. The files containing 
these tables are in spreadsheet format. A total of ninety-eight tables are presented.

The data in the files for tables 10 and 20 match those published in AEO96 Appendix tables A2 and A3, respectively. Forecasts for 1995, 1996, and 1997 in the files may differ from values published in the Short Term Energy 
Outlook, First Quarter 1996, which are the official EIA short-term forecasts and are based on more current information than the AEO.

The AEO reflects data and information available as of July 31, 1995. At that time, most 1993 and 1994 but only partial 1995 data were available. Following is an instruction sheet which describes how the files are organized and how to load the data onto your hard disk. If you have questions about the diskette or how to use them, please contact Joseph Baumgartner (202-586-1294). Questions concerning the projections should be directed to the most appropriate person on the contact list, which also follows.
