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.

At the same time, it’s not just the energy transition—the story of energy management practices really is saving customers energy and, ultimately, money. In this short and to the point article, Rafael Herzberg—consultant of energy affairs—highlights just what scale these energy bill savings can be particularly for large operations and industrial customers, stretching to thousands of dollars per year for the installation and use of a tool that costs less than $50.

That said, for grid-scale energy management practices to really make a dent on the load profile experienced by utilities and grid operators each day, the use of utility-scale grid storage systems will be necessary. More companies are coming into this game, seeing the immense opportunity and the improving costs and efficiencies of the related technologies. Julian Jackson brings to us a good case study example from the Netherlands to highlight what’s being done and what the ultimate impact will be.
