Demand Response (DR) is expected to increase flexibility and easier integration of renewable energy in the electric power systems since it can help matching the load with the renewable\'s resources but also because it serves as load curtailment in order to assure security of supply  and postpone additional investments . This is particularly relevant for isolated systems, as these systems cannot export the excess of renewable energy to another region, as interconnected systems can, thus making renewable forecast critical for the management of the energy system.
An isolated system should have preferably more than one energy source for reliability and security of supply, and hybrid renewable energy systems are therefore particularly suited for smaller systems: diesel, wind and solar are the top energy sources chosen, although the choice often relies on which was the previous energy system and which renewable resources are mostly available at the location . While renewable energy normally requires high investment costs, its operation costs are almost negligible when compared to diesel. Nevertheless, diesel takes an important role assuring the necessary system regulation and control.
