Modern electricity network will increasingly rely upon a set of intelligent communication and control technologies like home area network. Within the smart grid network, Home Area Network (HAN) help develop the demand response and demand side management. Renewable Energy opportunities such as Rooftop PV systems is also closely linked to the development of HAN and Demand Response. Several communication technologies are available in the market to implement HAN, but it is very important to choose the right one. Simply installing tools for implementing smart grid does nothing to influence customer energy usage behaviour. In this paper, we analyse the opportunities to improve demand management in a home for peak load curtailment and implementing the dynamic pricing policy. Wet also propose the comprehensive assessment of different technologies available for HAN and develop an approach for selecting suitable technologies, which contribute to demand management.
