No Carl,

That was supply management. Demand management, in this context, is when you reduce the demand for a commodity by reducing the need for it. With power this can be achieved by turning off computers and lights in offices when no-one is there (yes it commonly happens that they are left on over the holiday periods), turning off appliances at the powerpoint rather than leaving pilot lights on, turning off lights in the home when no-one is in a room, building solar friendly houses that don't need air conditioners, using the new fluorescent light bulbs (the old incandescent ones are being phased out anyway), installing solar hot water systems etc. etc. These things all reduce the demand for electricity from the grid.

And doing this is important for the survival of our birds.
