Applying DSM for balancing renewable energy sources (RES), makes it possible to increase energy production of RES without the need for expensive (spinning) reserve on fossil power plants. The potential of DSM has already been demonstrated for peak shaving, but to use DSM to balance RES, more knowledge of controllable loads is needed. This paper describes different controllable loads and their individual potential for balancing. The global potential for the Belgian case obtained by the considered loads is given for the year 2011 and projections for the years 2020 and 2050 are made.
