The paper is describing a dynamic smart grid technique applicable in a transparent electricity market where the end-user is enabled to be acting on controlling or curtailing own demand according to received information about market conditions on the internet. Computer-controlled switches are giving users the ability to control and curtail demand on user’s premises as necessary following a preset strategy. This technique is proposed for Eastern and Southern Australia where the Australian Energy Market Operator AEMO (2009) is presently publicly communicating such simultaneous information on electrical market conditions on the internet. The approach is pursuing improved use of electrical energy associated with improved energy management, reduced electricity prices and reduced pollution caused by electrical generation
