Energy Conservation: Daylight Saving Time: Energy Saved is the Greenest Energy!

This book examines the effects of daylight-saving time (DST) on hourly electricity load in Pakistan. DST was introduced in Pakistan during the years 2008 and 2009, providing a unique opportunity to conduct a natural experiment and analyze the impact of DST on electricity consumption. The study aims to determine the direct effects of DST by comparing periods before and after DST implementation, while also accounting for potential seasonal bias in the control period due to reduced electricity demand in the fall.
To address this potential bias, the book employs two different identification techniques. The direct approach utilizes a before and after analysis, while the 'equivalent day normalization technique' uses a with and without analysis, utilizing a block of hours as the control period. These two approaches are cross-examined to validate the results.
