BOSTON, Nov. 03, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EnerNOC, Inc. (Nasdaq:ENOC), a leading provider of energy intelligence software (EIS) and demand response solutions, announced today that its demand response portfolio in Korea surpassed one gigawatt—roughly equivalent to the amount of power generated by a nuclear power plant.
EnerNOC entered the market in late 2014, following legislation earlier that year that introduced demand response into the country’s wholesale capacity market. Since establishing operations in Korea, EnerNOC has become the preferred demand response provider to some of the region’s largest enterprises, public institutions, and universities, including S-Oil, COEX, Korea University, and Seoul City Government.
“We partnered with EnerNOC because they’re the world’s leader in demand response. They have the experience we rely on to ensure that we can participate in demand response without compromising our operations,” said JaeHee Kang, Facility Manager at Korea University.
Demand response has grown rapidly in Korea, propelled by the government’s strong commitment to creating a sustainable and competitive market and EnerNOC’s ability to leverage its industry-leading technology and experience to scale quickly.
“Korea relies on fuel imports to meet nearly 100% of its electricity needs. Demand response gives the Korean government increased flexibility to meet demand in a clean, cost-efficient way, with a reliable domestic energy resource, while at the same time allowing Korean businesses to use their flexibility to earn valuable new revenue streams,” said David Brewster, President, EnerNOC.
“Our success in Korea has been instrumental in stimulating interest throughout Asia. We’re excited about the emerging opportunities we see on the horizon to make DR a more integral part of the resource mix throughout the region,” added Brewster.
