Abstract

This paper addresses the efficacy of energy management at categorized points of end use. The objectives of this management are to implement some elements of the Smart Grid initiative. It is found that a focus on the commercial and industrial load sectors is recommended to implement efforts in energy conservation, peak shifting, and energy efficiency. The main basis of the recommendation is that there are fewer points of end use in the commercial and industrial load sectors, and these sectors comprise a larger part (e.g., about 79.6%) of the total electric energy use. A main conclusion is that load management should be at commercial and industrial loads rather than at residential loads.
