This International Energy Agency's Demand-Side Management (DSM) Programme was charged with studying issues surrounding the integration of energy efficiency, distributed generation, renewable energy resources and energy storage technologies—both locally and globally—to maximize the value of the resources and alleviate problems arising from their intermittent nature. This report describes how information was collected, analysed and synthesized, and it provides an advanced view of the integration of DSM and distributed energy.
