Using resources such as the EIA-860, EIA-423, EIA-906, and FERC Form 714, inventory of existing and proposed power plants, historical load data, load projections, fuel price projections, and expansion candidate technology data are used to produce models. Two scenarios are compared with each other, the baseline scenario and the drought scenario. To construct the baseline scenario, data from 2006 is used to project electricity demand in 2015 and 2020. The drought scenario, however, uses compiled data from the U.S. Drought Monitor to simulate realistic drought conditions.
