Understanding past greenhouse gas emissions and electricity supply and demand can help states create a forecast of what electricity supply and demand and emissions is expected to look like in the absence of additional policies. This forecast helps states understand how their electricity and emissions patterns are expected to change and provides a baseline to measure against when they are analyzing and implementing policies.
