National Energy Modeling System (NEMS)The National Energy Modeling System (NEMS) is a detailed computer-based, energy-economic modeling system of U.S. energy markets. NEMS projects energy supply, demand, imports, conversion, and prices to the year 2030, subject to market assumptions such as macroeconomic and investment factors, world energy markets, fuel availability, technology cost and performance characteristics of energy technologies, and more. The model was developed and is maintained by the Energy Information Administration (EIA) for use in developing annual projections (in particular the "Annual Energy Outlook") and for evaluating energy policies. OnLocation contributed to the original design of the NEMS Electricity Market Module and continues to update and enhance it for EIA.
In addition to model support, OnLocation uses NEMS to analyze a variety of energy and environmental policies for clients. Recent projects include:
Energy Information Administration's NEMS Homepage
Annual Energy Outlook - A key application of NEMS
EIA Service Reports - Many using NEMS as analytical platform
