EnerNOC Wins Fed Business

11/19/08

Boston’s EnerNOC, which runs “demand-response pools” consisting of companies, municipalities, and other organizations that agree to dial back their electricity consumption during hours of peak demand, said today that it’s won permission to sign up U.S. federal and military facilities as pool participants. The Pentagons’ Defense Energy Support Center (DESC) formally approved EnerNOC as a demand response provider—a potentially huge win for the company. “The federal government is the largest consumer of electricity in the United States and technology-enabled solutions like demand response can have a significant impact on reducing its energy consumption and costs,” EnerNOC chairman and CEO Tim Healy said in a statement.
