Because of the thinning of ozone layer, the greenhouse effect, global warming, sea-level rise and acid rains, power utilities worldwide are under mounting pressure to ensure that power system is environmentally friendly. Demand-side management (DSM) programme is viewed as the least-cost energy resource when both environmental costs and welfare needs are taken into account. The concept of DSM is new to Malaysia. DSM is a utility finances programme for total energy savings approach to reducing peak and base loads. It introduces a new element into the planning framework by allowing for a deliberate intervention by the power utility in the market place to influence customer use of electricity in order to alter the system load shape. It encompasses the planning, evaluation, implementation and monitoring of programmes selected from a wide range of technology and marketing alternatives. The success of each alternative depends on the marketing activities to promote customer participation. Like any new venture, developing a DSM programme begins with a period of innovation in procedures and operations. This paper outlines some DSM-related projects being undertaken as part of our plans to develop and implement appropriate DSM programme in Peninsular Malaysia. Although various DSM programmea are widely implemented in many developed countries, their adaptation under Malaysia social conditions and climate must first be evaluated to ensure their techno-economic viability and customer acceptance for ultimate success. Concurrently, the Research and Development Department of Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB) is undertaking a joint-project with the California Energy Commission on "Integrated Resource Planning (IRP) with emphasis on DSM" with the aim of producing detailed DSM plans for implementation. The IRP process includes a comprehensive DSM programme to create long-term energy efficiency improvements in the economy.
