This can lead to spikes in energy demand where there is a sudden surge in requirements that can cause irregularity in the power supply.
One idea that researchers have come up with is for so-called intelligent energy hungry appliances such as fridges.

The thought is that this would also reduce Co2 emissions significantly.
