As demand for electricity continues to rise, utilities and grid operators continue to look for ways to increase the electric grid’s capacity. Where once the only option was to fire up costly backup plants, power providers can now look to energy users to relieve the grid of excess demand at critical times.
EnerNOC's intuitive, web-based application, DemandSMART, enables commercial, industrial, and institutional entities to receive payments for participating in demand response programs. EnerNOC offers opportunities in more energy markets than any other provider, including the capacity, price-based, and ancillary services markets.
EnerNOC works with you to design an energy curtailment plan to reduce non-essential energy use during critical periods of imbalance between electricity supply and demand on the grid. We maximize your curtailment potential while minimizing impact on day-to-day operations. The energy you don’t use becomes part of our virtual power plant, and the grid draws from it when it needs greater capacity, instead of starting up a coal-fired back-up plant. During these critical need periods, a demand response dispatch is triggered, and utilities and grid operators call upon EnerNOC to enact our partners’ energy reduction plans. The grid is stabilized, and our partners—commercial, industrial, and institutional entities just like you—get paid for the energy they don’t use. They're also paid year-round just for being on call.
With DemandSMART everyone benefits – utilities, businesses, the community, and the environment.
Our skilled technicians deploy our DemandSMART technology at your sites, and cover all costs associated with bringing your facility online. All DemandSMART customers can view their energy use data in real time through EnerNOC’s online customer portals. We work with you every step of the way, helping you maximize the amount you can earn through your participation and making demand response profitable for your business from day one.
