About Demand Analysis Working Group

The Demand Analysis Working Group (DAWG) is a forum for technical discussion and consensus-building on inputs and results for the electricity and natural gas demand forecasts adopted by the California Energy Commission. The Energy Commission’s Energy Assessments Division sponsors and manages the DAWG. Staff convenes DAWG, pulling in additional forecasting experts at the utilities as well as other stakeholders, to discuss technical details behind the forecast. The purpose is to build consensus on those details before the forecast is complete so that the adoption process can proceed smoothly.

Subgroups

DAWG meets regularly, either as the full working group or in four key subgroups, colloquially known as “Pups.”
