DSM (Demand Side Managament) has changed since it was first introduced in the 1980s as an active policy instrument to make energy systems perform better and more economically. In the years since and primarily in the early years of the new millennium technology has provided new opportunities with smarter applications, decentralised power making use of local renewable sources and with a booming IT for management. We rather talk about Integrated DSM (IDSM).
Policy challenges to make energy systems sustainable and reduce (prevent) climate change has been more pronounced with the Paris accord as the ultimate example. Still market uptake is slow and well beyond expectations (and needs).
It is time for DSM to shape up and deliver!
