Electricity Demand-Side Management
We would like to invite submissions to this Topic on the subject of Electricity Demand-Side Management.
Demand-side management (DSM) is a critical instrument to deal with contemporary utility business risks. At the same time, it is also part of the portfolio of options of energy and environmental policies in the context of climate change. The electricity industry is unbundled in many parts of the world, as in many others, it still is vertically integrated. DSM plays similar roles in both cases. Consolidated management instruments may be used in the case of vertically integrated utilities, where the impacts of acting on the demand side are perceptible across the value chain. In the case of liberalized markets of electricity, new approaches have to be used, as there is a much larger number of relevant economic agents whose interests are not coincident. New insights and methods have to be used for assessing the economic and societal interest of DSM programs and measures.
Together with distributed energy resources, DSM is a part of a larger picture where demand flexibility is key to a sustainable energy future, where renewable electricity, energy storage, demand response, electric mobility and smart grids are all inextricably connected.
We look forward to your submissions with new insights into the contemporary and future roles of DSM.
