Renewable energy is the focus of the 5th Strategic Energy Plan in Japan. Electric load management systems such as Demand Response (DR) are necessary to increase renewable energy usage. The focus of this study is pre-cooling operations in the daytime, during summer, to reduce electric load during DR. The aim of this study is to evaluate (1) the effectiveness of electric demand shift by "Pre-cooling", and (2) the effect on comfort and health of the residents who switch to "Pre-cooling".
