                                                     for the last word in energy information

Who are EIA’s customers?
• Public policy makers in Congress, the Administration, and DOE
• Federal Government Agencies, State and local governments
• The energy industry
• Educational institutions
• News media
• The public
In support of the DOE’s Energy Resources Performance Goals:
EIA will provide national and international energy data, analysis, information and
  forecasts to meet the needs of the energy decision-makers and the public in order
  to promote sound policymaking, efficient energy markets and public
  understanding.

EIA’s Current Priorities & Activities
• The volatility in energy markets, the deregulation of energy industries, and
  environmental issues, are placing high demands on EIA for information and
  analyses.
• Congress is increasingly asking for EIA testimony and analyses. For example, in
  2001, EIA testified at 15 hearings.
• Administration and Congress are asking EIA for special analyses and briefings on
  the energy situation, and short- and mid-term forecasts of the future.
• Congress has asked EIA to analyze several issues of interest (e.g., low sulfur
  diesel regulations, and limits on multiple-emissions from electric power plants).
• EIA is being asked to analyze legislative proposals in Congress.
• In response to the events of September 2001, EIA is producing the Energy
  Situation Analysis Report (ESAR) twice weekly.
• EIA will be operating the Weekly Natural Gas Underground Storage Survey
  beginning in May 2002 – survey discontinued by the American Gas Association.

EIA’s Priorities & Initiatives

• Maintain data quality during period of high energy interest, and provide timely
  energy information and analyses.

• Redesign surveys to reflect restructured industries, demographic changes, new
  fuel standards, and update aging data systems (resulting from restructuring of
  energy markets including unbundling of services, sell-off of operating capacity to
  non-utilities, new and changing market participants, and retail competition).

• Address increased complexity in data collection due to restructured energy
  industries.

• Address known data quality issues in current surveys.
