Demand Side Management or “DSM,” refers to those “actions taken on the customer’s side of the meter to change the amount or timing of energy consumption. Utility DSM programs offer a variety of measures that can reduce energy consumption and consumer energy expenses. Electricity DSM strategies have the goal of maximizing end-use efficiency to avoid or postpone the construction of new generating plants.” Therefore, Demand Side Management, is the process of managing the consumption of energy, generally to optimize available and planned generation resources..
