EnerNOC demand response enhances reliability of North American electric power grid

Boston, Mass., August 26, 2009 – EnerNOC, Inc., a provider of clean and intelligent energy solutions, has managed over 90 demand response events year to date, yielding an average performance of about 103 percent, based on nominated versus delivered capacity.

EnerNOC’s demand response network comprises over 5,450 commercial, institutional and industrial customer sites throughout North America.

To date in 2009, EnerNOC’s demand response network has been dispatched in each of the company’s service territories throughout North America due to region-specific needs such as record heat waves, fires under transmission lines, high wholesale electricity prices, plant failures, peak management, system tests, and other needs.

EnerNOC has already announced bilateral contracts with seven utilities in 2009, while continuing to expand its presence in open markets.

A critical component to the company’s ability to scale its network while ensuring continued successful delivery of demand response has been the deployment of PowerTalk, EnerNOC’s innovative presence-enabled smart grid technology.

In addition to assisting in the streamlined enablement of demand response sites, PowerTalk provides EnerNOC’s Network Operations Center personnel real-time visibility into demand response assets at participating commercial, institutional, and industrial sites.

PowerTalk enables predictable, dynamic, and reliable dispatch and management, while providing utilities, end-use customers, and EnerNOC a real-time, transparent view of demand response event performance.
