Task 2 – Communication Technologies for Demand-Side Management
Task 2 started in 1993 and was concluded in 2003. In consequence the Task carried out work over the whole period of transition of utility businesses in many countries from utilities with a single product offering to full commercial companies. New utility businesses are now competitive entities seeking to offer a range of products to meet customer and market requirements. Task 2 was initially conceived to study the issue of providing cost effective communication for energy management services in a utility environment.
