Demand Side Management (DSM) is the modification of consumer demand for energy through various methods such as financial incentives, behavioral change through education, and technologies that enable energy efficiency in a manner that responds to the dynamics of the electric grid. According to the Department of Energy (DOE), to meet electricity demand in , the nation may need more than new large power plants. Because utility-sponsored programs promoting more efficient electricity use, called 'demand-side management' (DSM) programs, can help avoid the costs and environmental concerns associated with power plants, the Chairman, Environment, Energy, and .

  Discernable engagement by the utility’s senior leadership is crucial to the development and sustainability of a service culture that goes beyond service quality improvement efforts or customer service training. Utility executives need to understand the business impact of being a . In a book published in , entitled "Strategic Marketing for Electric Utilities,"1 authors Clark Gellings and Dilip Limaye devote an entire chapter to the principles of von Clausewitz and how they apply in the case of electric utility programs such as demand-side management (DSM), integrated resource planning (IRP), and incentive rates for.
