Weather impact on the electric energy consumption of domestic users; Impacto del clima en el consumo de energia electrica en los usuarios domesticos

Abstract

It is said that when an energy saving and efficient use of energy program is implemented it must be a business for three: the user, the society and the electric utility. In respect to the user, his decision making is quite simple: is it cheaper or more expensive for me?. Unfortunately in many cases we want a very short return time or the money needed for the initial investment is not available. For instance, and incandescent bulb is several times less expensive than a compact fluorescent lamp, but if we make the calculation on the life-time and on the power consumption reduction of the compact fluorescent lamp, we can conclude that this one is more economic. The benefit for the society can be seen under many different aspects, being the most important the natural resources conservation and the environment. From the stand point of the utility the heavier possible factors are the postponement of the investments and the system reliability. When some of the programs of the Demand Side Management (DSM) are applied, the utilities support or promote non financially profitable but improve their image before the user, on creating a consciousness in the saving and in the efficient use  More>>

The benefit for the society can be seen under many different aspects, being the most important the natural resources conservation and the environment. From the stand point of the utility the heavier possible factors are the postponement of the investments and the system reliability. When some of the programs of the Demand Side Management (DSM) are applied, the utilities support or promote non financially profitable but improve their image before the user, on creating a consciousness in the saving and in the efficient use of energy: a short term investment is made and a long term revenue is obtained. For this reason for an optimum selection and implementation the saving and the efficient use of electric energy measures a detailed knowledge of the consumption way is required. In this paper the importance of monitoring the way the different type of users employ the energy in order to make up decisions on DSM programs in many different scenarios: cities, type of users, income level, etc. is shown. [Espanol] Se dice que cuando se implementa un programa de ahorro y uso eficiente de la energia electrica, debe ser negocio para tres: el usuario, la sociedad y la empresa electrica. En lo que respecta al usuario, su toma de decision es muy simple: me resulta mas barato o mas caro. Desafortunadamente en muchos de los casos queremos un tiempo de retorno muy corto, o no se cuenta con el dinero necesario para la inversion inicial. Por ejemplo, una lampara incandescente cuesta varias veces menos que una lampara fluorescente compacta, pero si hacemos el calculo en el tiempo de vida y la reduccion en consumo de la lampara fluorescente compacta, podemos concluir que esta es mas rentable. El beneficio para la sociedad puede verse desde muy diversos aspectos, siendo el mas importante la conservacion de los recursos naturales y el medio ambiente. Desde el punto de vista empresa, los posibles factores de mas peso son el diferimiento de inversiones y la confiabilidad del sistema. Cuando se aplican algunos programas de administracion por el Lado de Demanda (ALD), las empresas apoyan o promueven proyectos no rentables financieramente, pero ganan impactando en el usuario, al crear una conciencia de ahorro y uso eficiente de la energia: se invierte en el corto plazo y se gana en el largo plazo. Por lo anterior, para una seleccion e implementacion optima, de medidas de ahorro y uso eficiente de energia electrica, se requiere de un conocimiento detallado de la forma de consumo. En el presente trabajo se muestra la importancia que tiene el monitoreo de la forma de uso de la energia en diferentes tipos de usuarios, para poder tomar decisiones de programas de ALD, en muy diversos escenarios: ciudades, tipos de usuarios, niveles de ingresos, etc.}
