Load shedding can also be initiated by transmission system operators (TSOs). This is a targeted measure known as a controlled brownout. Entire districts can be taken off the grid in an emergency to prevent a more widespread power failure.
Load management is useful for several reasons. Grid operators benefit by using large-scale power consumers to help level out frequency deviations. Companies can reduce their energy costs, and providing balancing energy can even turn a profit. In the long term, active load control is an important contribution to the efficient integration of renewable energies.
