- by efficient use of ICT
The project was accomplished from 2001 - 2004.
The objective of the project is to increase the end-user flexibility in periods with scarcity of electrical energy and power by:
In the project technology for two-way communication (Automatic meter reading and remote load control) were installed at more thant 10.000 end-use customers, mainly household customers. About 50% had installed technology for remote load control.
A flexibility in electricity consumption of 0,2 - 1,0 kWh/h for household customers were found through a large-scale pilot test with remote load control, new network tariffs and power contracts .
