Texas National Energy Modeling Project: An Experience in Large-Scale Model Transfer and Evaluation reports on the Texas National Energy Model Project (TNEMP) experience. The TNEP was tasked with providing an independent evaluation of the Energy Information Administration's (EIA) Midterm Energy Forecasting System. It also provided recommendations to the Texas Energy Advisory Council concerning the maintenance of a national modeling system by the Council to evaluate Texas impacts within a consistent national modeling framework. The book provides all of the summary material documenting the entire experience, sequentially, from beginning to end. It first lays out the purposes of TNEMP, the organizational structure for the study, and an explanation of the evaluation criteria used to guide the model critiques. It summarizes in some detail the important findings of each of the 11 studies contained in Part II published under a separate cover. It presents the National Advisory Board’s assessment of the integrity of the evaluation project, their views of important outcomes of the TNEMP experience, and important recommendations to TNEMP and EIA. The final chapters contain an overview reply by EIA and a summary of a workshop held at the end of the project to discuss substantive issues raised by TNEMP.

Milton Holloway holds a Bachelor of Science (1966) and Master of Science (1968) degrees in Applied and Resource Economics from Texas Tech University and a Ph.D. in Applied Economics from Oregon State University (1972). He is founder and President of Resource Economics, Inc., an economic consulting firm in Austin, Texas. His professional experience includes consulting, university teaching (in Texas and Mexico) and direction of Texas energy policy and R&D agencies. Holloway’s primary consulting, research and teaching interests have focused on applied economics and natural resource conservation in both public and private sector venues. During the decade following the Arab Oil Embargo of 1973 he directed Texas energy policy agencies focused on energy policy and new technology R&D. Under Holloway’s leadership (alongside others) Texas adopted the first ever comprehensive Texas energy policy, and recommended energy policy changes to the federal government. Following the deregulation of Texas electric utilities in 2005 Holloway helped organize, and then directed, a Texas non-profit organization - the Center for the Commercialization of Electric Technologies (CCET) whose purpose was to promote technological and institutional innovation in the Texas electric market. The state agency roles of the 1970s and early 1980s included Executive Director appointments by two Texas Governors with Senate confirmation. The CCET appointment as President and COO was made by the organization’s private sector Board of Directors.
