An energy demand management system, scheme or protocol is effectively a form of turning devices off, down or into an energy-conserving mode when prices or loads are too high. Also known as demand-side management, a term which came into use in the 1970s, [1], it is almost exclusively used to mean electricity demand management and not other fuels.

The openADR and other demand response schemes are part of EDM/DSM. See power grid terms for more detail on the various technical terms used in EDM/DSM.
