This Project contributes to aligning policies with climate targets. It will establish a DSM Policy and Program for the electric power industry for the reduction of energy demand by promoting a range of strategies that influence end-users to reduce electricity consumption, shift load patterns, and reduce peak demand. DSM will enhance distribution grids’ efficiency, enhance system flexibility and reliability, and delay the need for additional power plants. This project will strengthen the implementation of the policy by delivering capacity building and developing a DSM toolkit. The combined impact of reduced energy consumption and increased penetration of variable renewables to the grid will result in more significant GHG emissions reduction and displace fossil-fuel based power generation.
