Sorry, I wouldn't recognise it as the gnome logo; it's the wrong shape and also it is clear that it is part of a logo in it's own right.

I also don't find the video missleading. The supply and demand principle directly relates fossil fule use (and therefore additional c02 into atmosphere) with consumer demand, the national grid only puts in as much energy as is being demanded. In the current situation mostly fossile fules are meeting this. Which is why the video is saying, please reduce unecessary demand (waste).
