RESTREPO, Álvaro R.; NOPE, Sandra E.  and  ENRIQUEZ, Delio E.. Economic Benefits of Demand Management and Self-Generated energy in the Context of Colombian Regulations. Inf. tecnol. [online]. 2018, vol.29, n.1, pp.105-116. ISSN 0718-0764.

In this paper the economic benefits of the operation of an electric self-generation system with renewable energy sources are determined. The system is connected to the traditional grid and, it has the options to participating in the programs of demand response and to export its surpluses of generation. The variables of the management model were identified based on the Colombians laws and guidelines, established by the government entities of the electricity sector. The results show that the model can be applied to companies from different economic sectors using different curves of load. The uncertainty of the generation and the calculation of the profits were approached with Monte Carlo Simulation. A case of study is presented where a photovoltaic generation system was included, and the proposed model was applied to the industrial and service sectors. This allows analyzing the different benefits that investors can receive varying the capacity of self-generation.

Keywords : self-generation; demand response; uncertainty; renewable energy; economic benefits.
