Load Research Study for Ceylon Electricity Board, Sri Lanka

Client: Ceylon Electricity Board

A key component of the World Bank funded Energy Services Delivery project was the DSM Implementation Strategy and Load Research Program, initiated by the Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB). The primary focus of this program was to develop improved databases and capabilities to identify and implement actions to improve energy efficiency and reduce the future increases in electricity costs to consumers. EnergyConsult staff led the load research program. Data from market research surveys, customer site metering, power generation and distribution records, utility sales records were used to establish the breakdown of system load profile at regional, sector, segment, end-use and end-use technology levels.
