      • Requires training and technical support
      • Energy Conservation has become an important problem during the last years, in most of the countries.
      • The general belief is that it is economically better to reduce energy loss and waste than increasing costs in generation and transmission systems.
    • AI Techniques
      • Energy conservation is at the same time a technical and a conscience problem.
      • At the technical side, a number of problems can be successfully approached through intelligent systems for the purposes of energy management and conservation. Intelligent Techniques are having a growing impact on the electricity sector.
    • Intelligent System Applications in the electricity sector for electrical energy management and conservation
      • A new generation of intelligent computing techniques is entering the electricity sector.
      • These techniques include neural networks, genetic algorithms, fuzzy logic and expert systems.
      • In the electricity sector, intelligent techniques are being applied to :
      • load forecasting,
      • optimal capacitor placement,
      • economic load dispatch… etc,
      • and in many cases are outperforming traditional methods.
    • The areas of electricity sector for electrical energy management and conservation
    • Intelligent Techniques and their properties
    • Conclusions
      • Energy conservation should be a priority for everyone nowadays.
      • For large organizations, electrical energy savings are even more relevant because their bills are bigger and their usage is greater.
      • Finding ways to deal smartly with facilities and household equipments will have a great impact in Houses and buildings.
      • The effects of these intelligent computer driven systems will
      • The effect of AI methods will soon become clear in the area of energy conservation as they become commercial products.
