This report provides an assessment of methods for managing loads in the context of the isolated, village-scale mini-grid, which is typically limited in both generation capacity and finances. With limited generation capacity, some form of demand-side management (DSM) strategy or technology is required to maintain reliable electricity service and ensure equitable sharing of the resource among users. However, due to limited financial resources, any DSM measures applied must be cost-effective and appropriate to the particular mini-grid.
