Demand Energy is Now EnerNOC: What This Means for You
How combining Demand Energy’s intelligent energy storage technology with EnerNOC’s demand-side management expertise will bring greater flexibility to our customers and the grid.
Demand Energy has officially merged with EnerNOC, bringing two Enel Group companies together under the same brand. We wanted to take this opportunity to lay out the future for Demand Energy, answer some questions you may have about the future, and thank all of our partners and anyone else who has supported us along the way.
First, it’s important to clarify that the Demand Energy team isn’t going away. While you may see the name less in the coming months, the team and technology will continue to operate as EnerNOC. The only difference is how our combined capabilities will benefit our customers.
So, who is EnerNOC? Since 2001, EnerNOC has built the world’s largest network of demand response programs, managing a capacity of 6GW for more than 8,000 customers across 9 countries. They’ve helped build demand response from an abstract idea at the dawn of the deregulation of energy markets into a valuable tool that benefits both the grid and the energy users that participate. They even played a pivotal role in a 2016 Supreme Court decision that determined demand response’s fate.
While operating at the intersection of the grid and the organizations that rely on it, EnerNOC gained a unique perspective into the transformation of the energy industry. This led them to expand their capabilities in order to help their customers embrace this change. Today, EnerNOC serves as a trusted partner with commercial, industrial, and institutional energy users—as well as utilities—to reduce costs, manage risk, and improve resiliency and sustainability through a suite of solutions that include demand-side management, strategic energy procurement, utility bill management, and energy management. And now, that includes Demand Energy’s DEN.OS.
Since 2008, Demand Energy’s mission has been to help our customers maximize the value of distributed energy resources (DERs). Integrating with EnerNOC, particularly as part of the Enel Group, will only enable us to bring that value to new heights. Our customers are already seeing the benefits of our combined capabilities—as well as with smart electric vehicle charging capabilities of eMotorWerks, which also joined the Enel Group in 2017—by supporting demand-side management strategies in places like California, New York, and Canada. We haven’t even scratched the surface of our potential as part of the Enel Group’s go-to-market strategy, and we couldn’t be more excited for the future.
