Primary tabs

The Georgia Tech Enterprise Innovation Institute initiates a new speaker series related to the advancement of clean energy initiatives. This kick-off event features Alan Beamon and Michael Schaal, two members of the Energy Information Administration within the U.S. Department of Energy.

About Alan Beamon
Alan Beamon is the Director of the Energy Information Administration's Coal and Electric Power Division. He has worked on electricity analysis projects since 1984. His responsibilities include the development and maintenance of the coal, renewable and electricity components of EIA's National Energy Modeling System (NEMS). NEMS is used each year to produce the Annual Energy Outlook, which provides projections through 2030 of energy consumption and prices. It is also used to prepare special studies, including those requested by Congress or the Administration. Key areas of analysis have included the development of National SO2 Allowance Database and analysis of the impacts of the Clean Air Acts Amendments of 1990. Recent work has focused on the impact of proposed environmental regulations on the electricity sector—especially efforts to reduce nitrogen oxides, sulfur dioxide, mercury and carbon dioxide. Alan received his degree in economics from the College of William and Mary in 1982.

About Michael Schaal
Michael Schaal is the Director of the Energy Information Administration's Oil and Gas Division. His primary focus is on producing the oil and natural gas and biofuels projections for EIA's Annual Energy Outlook. Mr. Schaal's prior experience includes working as a professional engineer with Bechtel Corporation of San Francisco where he was involved in economic analysis, engineering, construction, and operations of first-of-a-kind facilities, and as a consultant with Energy Ventures Analysis, Inc. advising clients on natural gas and power sector issues. Mr. Schaal received his B.S. in electrical engineering from the California State University in 1986, and his Masters degree in Mineral Economics from The Pennsylvania State University in 1995.
