Steve Nadel, Yang Zhirong, and Shi Yingyi


Utilities and governments in developing countries are now considering whether to use integrated resource planning techniques and demand-side management programs as part of their efforts to meet future demand for electricity. This report introduces IRP and DSM to a developing country audience and provides discussion on how these concepts can apply to developing countries and to China in particular. Published in both English and Chinese, we will ship the English version unless Chinese is specifically requested.
