The mission of the Energy Commission's analytical division is to conduct assessments of California's electricity and natural gas systems and trends providing information for decision-makers and the public resulting in policies that balance the need for adequate resources with economic, public health, safety, and environmental goals. The divisions's emphasis is on building staff capabilities in the latest modeling and analytical techniques.

The Electricity Supply Analysis Division was created in July 2006 combining two offices from other Energy Commission Divisions into one integrated Division. The Electricity Assessment Office was moved from the Systems Assessment and Facilities Siting Division. The Demand Analysis Office was moved from the Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Division.
