Demand-side management measures can be used to support electricity grids by relieving network constraints and/or providing services for electricity network system operators.

This webinar will summarise the results from detailed case studies of 64 DSM grid support projects from 13 different countries around the world implemented between the early 1990s and 2008.

The webinar will cover the following topics:

  • identifying the value of a DSM grid support project to different categories of stakeholders;
  • evaluating and acquiring demand-side resources for grid support;
  • incorporating demand-side measures into grid planning;
  • the role of load control and smart metering in supporting electricity grids.
