What is the National Energy Modeling System?
Developed and maintained by the Energy Information Administration (EIA) of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), the National Energy Modeling System (NEMS) is the leading integrated energy model supporting U.S. policy analysis and projections up to the year 2050.
With extensive experience using integrated energy modeling like NEMS, OnLocation will help you assess the costs and benefits of energy policies and technologies, providing insights into potential challenges along the way.

How We Use NEMS
As OnLocation’s primary integrated modeling tool and the most trusted energy tool in the U.S., our team is uniquely-qualified to meet your analysis needs using NEMS. From creating custom applications to solving complex modeling challenges, we’ve earned an industry-leading reputation in designing and implementing scenarios that provide valuable insights.
Sample scenarios designed to offer helpful market insights:
Alternative Energy Futures
Includes: High/low fuel prices, high/low energy resources, or high/low technology costs. Read our analysis on the potential impact of halting new lease sales in the Gulf of Mexico at the link below. Read More
CO2 Policy Scenarios
Includes: CO2 prices, CO2 cap-and-trade policies, or other decarbonization strategies. Learn about OnLocation’s role in the federal government’s long-term strategy for achieving net-zero GHG emissions in the U.S. by 2050 at the link below. Read More
Clean Technology Policies
Includes: Technology incentives included in the Inflation Reduction Act or CAFE and GHG standards for vehicles. See how we customize the latest Annual Energy Outlook version of NEMS to add or enhance technology standards and incentives at the link below. Read More
More on the NEMS Model
New to NEMS? This computer-based modeling system is used by EIA to develop projections for the Annual Energy Outlook (AEO) and evaluate energy policies based on service requests from Congress and various government agencies.
Since its creation in the early 1990s, OnLocation has provided EIA with technical support in the design, development, and application of the NEMS model. Today, our team of energy experts continue to help build and enhance NEMS modules for Critical Materials, Climate Impacts & Adaptations, Hydrogen, Liquid Fuels, CO2 Transport, clean fuel transformation of electricity, and many other focus areas
