ENERGY DEMAND FORECASTING MODEL, TECHNICAL APPENDIX. COMPUTER PROGRAM USERS GUIDE AND OPERATING MANUAL, DATA BASE USERS GUIDE, AND PACIFIC NORTHWEST ENERGY DATA BASE
This document contains operating instructions and system documentation for a computerized energy demand forecasting model. The model has the capability to forecast energy demand for four fuel types (electricity, gas, oil, and coal), for the three Northwest states (Washington, Oregon, and Idaho), in five-year steps, from 1980 through the year 2000. The forecasts are further broken down into the Residential, Commercial, Industrial, Transportation, and 'Other' sectors. The model is written in Fortran for the CDC 6500 computer. The model is econometric, correlating over 800 time series. The document also contains a Pacific Northwest Energy Data base plus a Data Base Users Guide.
