An electrical grid would be stable when the electricity demand and supply are in balance.
The power generation should increase in response to increase in load.
Demand-side management (DSM) is a way to reduce peak load demand so that adequacy of electricity will be maintaine without interruption.
Apart from reducing peak load demand, DSM is useful in other applications also, like mitigation of emergencies in the electrical power system, reducing blackouts and increasing reliability of the electrical power system.
Due to these benefits, price of electricity reduces, harmful effects on environment also get reduced and also dependence.
