Accessing affordable, reliable, sustainable, and modern energy for all and making cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient, and sustainable are the seventh and the eleventh targets of the sustainable development goals (SDGs) for 2030. The consistent supply of electricity is a fundamental requirement to ensure overall developmental growth within local communities by using appropriate, accessible, and affordable technologies. Some countries have accessible electricity most of the time but struggle with interruptions due to shortages in the generation and typically apply load shedding schemes as a solution. This research presents a novel method of using artificial intelligence techniques with smart grids equipment to offer more controlled load management and load shedding scheme to minimise interruptions on communities.
