BOSTON, Aug. 26, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EnerNOC, Inc. (Nasdaq:ENOC), a leading provider of energy intelligence software, today announced that its technology has been certified by the OpenADR Alliance for compliance with the OpenADR 2.0 Profile B specification. Profile B is designed for high-end embedded devices that support a wide range of demand response services and markets, and this certification confirms EnerNOC's ability to seamlessly integrate with demand response programs in new and existing markets that require standards compliance. EnerNOC is one of the first companies in the OpenADR Alliance to announce a 2.0B-compliant product.
"International markets have started to design and implement demand response programs and infrastructure, and are looking to standards such as OpenADR 2.0B to accelerate growth. We believe we are well-positioned to leverage these global opportunities," said Hugh Scandrett, Vice President of Engineering at EnerNOC. "This certification marks another step in EnerNOC's continued mission to provide fast, reliable automated demand response to our utility and commercial, institutional, industrial, and agricultural partners, and further validates demand response as a cost-effective, integral part of a modern energy infrastructure."
Fully automated demand response (AutoDR) streamlines the communication and signaling surrounding a demand response dispatch such that building management systems can respond in seconds to signals from a utility or provider such as EnerNOC. Deploying a standards-based approach like OpenADR helps to lower the cost of enabling AutoDR resources.
EnerNOC has been a member of the OpenADR Alliance since 2010, and currently holds a position on the Alliance's Board of Directors. EnerNOC is also on the Board of Directors of the Smart Grid Interoperability Panel of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).
