Description The increasing number of local renewable energy sources connected into the power grid brings new challenges -- organizational, technical, political. One of the challenges corresponds to the problem of efficient localization of the power source nearest to the consumption points with the aim of lowering the pressure put on the distribution grid. To support this effect, the Energy Regulatory Office of the Czech Republic declares the policy of the "Green premium" (bonus) which motivates local consumption of the energy produced by renewable sources. The green premium offers financial support of direct consumption of the local produced power. In the paper, we briefly present the technical and organizational rules of this policy and a case study of an automatic system for intelligent demand-side management adapted to these rules.
