Description

Electricity is critical for continued economic growth in the Middle East. The demand for electricity and installed capacity has increased rapidly since eightieth of the last century. To provide for the countries growing electricity needs, Middle East electricity sector generation investment program calls for capacity additions and capital expenditures. By developing the least-cost mix of power sector resources to meet this growing demand, the Middle East can ensure the most productive use of its investment capital.

This program provides an introduction to demand-side management (DSM), which has been increasingly adopted by electric utilities in industrialized nations as a power sector resource and an option to traditional supply side investments. DSM is the planning, implementation, and evaluation of utility activities that are designed to encourage customers to modify their electricity consumption patterns with respect to both the timing and level of demand (kW) and energy (kWh). DSM thus mobilizes power sector resources on the customer's side of the meter. These resources can be planned, measured, and used to satisfy customer demand for electric services.
