Demand Management for Off-Grid Electricity Networks
For isolated mini-grids powered mainly or wholly by renewable energy-based generation, balancing electricity supply and demand is a considerable challenge. This chapter reviews the scope and practical methods for active demand management as part of the solution to this problem. It highlights the wide range of possible methods and their applicability and limitations for different mini-grid technologies and operating environments. The need for suitable tools to design and plan demand management schemes is identified.
