Load management encompasses the critical strategies of ensuring that power supply and demand meet cleanly at a point that doesn’t stress the grid or cause financial stress on utilities or customers, an area that will be of increasing importance with each passing year. In this monthly digest, we cover the most talked about and newsworthy articles in this space that were published on Energy Central over the past four weeks. We invite you to ‘get a load of this!’ every month and track the load management sector.

This area is one that Energy Central Community is closely watching, so this post from Thomas Vogel is a great primer.

A key tool, of course, will then be to find ways to reduce energy use and to manage where and when the demand loads lay. Energy Central Expert Nick Meeten shares an interested post covering a recent speech given by the leader of the EU Energy Commission that sets the stage for what sort of asks are going to be coming of European energy customers in the coming months.
