Demand Side Management


Significant decrease in the energy demand by consumers were seen as a result of Demand Side Management programs implemented such as the solar water heating program with an estimated 425000 systems installed and a further decrease can be expected with the LED lighting program with a target energy efficiency value of 466MW [DoE, 2016].
