Utilities around the world have been considering Demand Side Management (DSM) in their strategic planning. The costs of constructing and operating a new capacity generation unit are increasing everyday as well as Transmission and distribution and land issues for new generation plants, which force the utilities to search for another alternatives without any additional constraints on customers comfort level or quality of delivered product. De can be defined as the selection, planning, and

DSM programs are peak clipping, Valley filling, Load shifting, Load building, energy conservation and flexible load shape. The main Target of this paper is to show the relation between DSM and Load Forecasting. Moreover, it highlights on the effect of applying DSM on Forecasted demands and how this affects the planning strategies for utility companies. This target will be clearly illustrated through applying the developed algorithm in this paper on an existing residential compound in Cairo-Egypt.
