Description (excerpt):

The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) produces projections of U.S. energy production, consumption, and prices each year in the Annual Energy Outlook (AEO). The AEO is produced on an alternating cycle: a full AEO (including complete documentation and a large number of alternative cases) followed by a shorter AEO (more limited documentation and only a few alternative cases). Each year that a full AEO is released, EIA also produces the AEO Retrospective Review (AEO Retrospective). The AEO Retrospective compares recent history with the Reference case projections from previous editions of the AEO. The AEO Retrospective shows the relationship between past AEO projections and actual energy indicators, and it informs discussions about the underlying models.
