Drivers of peak demand

Ausgrid’s demand management team analysed the drivers of network peak demand and presented findings at the Smart Utilities conference in November 2012. 

This presentation includes an analysis of the peak demand contribution of different customer types during the February 2011 summer peak when the Ausgrid and NSW electricity system reached their highest peak load on record. The diversity of spatial zone substation demand, network investment drivers and available demand management options were also presented.
