Electricity demand in developing countries is expected to rise significantly by the year 2020. Electricity consumers in both developed and developing countries are not active participants in the operations of electrical networks. Research has shown that significant benefits may be achieved when consumers participate in such electrical network operations. In these instances consumers were able to reduce their electrical energy consumption via coordinated demand response programs. However, there are some challenges in offering or deploying a consumer-based demand response program. This paper presents a novel system which enables electrical utilities to provide their consumers with a consumer-based demand response program.
