Demand Analysis Office

The Demand Analysis Office provides energy demand forecasts to policymakers by collecting and analyzing data on electricity peak demand and consumption, natural gas consumption, and transportation fuel use. Other information used to develop these forecasts includes projected economic and demographic growth, projected changes in rates and other costs, estimated impacts of energy efficiency efforts, and historic weather data. The staff of engineers, economists, and statisticians also relies on information collected using surveys to better understand how Californians' behavior and use of appliances, business and industrial equipment, and vehicles affect energy demand. The electricity and natural gas forecasts are used in various planning processes that are meant to ensure that California customers can rely on an adequate energy supply at reasonable prices. The transportation forecasts provide an assessment of progress toward meeting California's alternative fuel goals. The Demand Analysis Office is comprised of four teams of analysts:
