    IIRC, Per unit of economic output we are needing less energy inputs.  

    This is taking many forms.  Modern construction (even non-green) leeks less.  Office buildings are more efficient.  The next generation of LEDs are going to be more efficient than Florescent Tubes.  

    Demand reduction (negawats) will make a difference because retired dirty coal units will not need replacement because of reduced market demand.
