EnerNOC Introduces New Software Packages Designed to Accelerate Enterprise Adoption of EIS
New Packaging and Pricing Structure Makes it Easier for Enterprises to Realize Full Value of EIS
Boston, Aug. 5th, 2014 – EnerNOC, Inc. (Nasdaq:ENOC), a leading provider of energy intelligence software (EIS), today unveiled a new pricing and package structure designed to accelerate adoption of its software by large enterprises and deliver the capabilities to manage energy cost drivers: how energy is bought, how much energy is used, and when energy is used. EnerNOC's new packages adopt a traditional SaaS-approach of 'good, better, best' bundling of features and services, with price points that reflect the increased customer value associated with more feature-rich, high touch deployments.
"Every core business function leverages an enterprise software solution to manage its respective costs and improve productivity, yet the majority of enterprises are still using spreadsheets to manage energy. This highly manual approach is error-prone, creates information silos that impede productivity, and restricts organizations' ability to evaluate energy management performance against clear financial metrics," said Tim Healy, Chairman and CEO of EnerNOC. "Energy intelligence software helps organizations overcome these challenges and stop profit drains resulting from sub-optimal energy management. We've built a complete solution that customers like Colgate Palmolive, Deutsche Bank Real Estate, Petro Plastics, and Thermo Fisher Scientific rely on to manage costs and translate energy management into a competitive advantage."
"Energy spend is driven by three primary cost drivers: how you buy it, how much you use, and when you use it. Managing any one of those cost drivers will yield results, but managing them in an integrated fashion and understanding how they impact one another is what drives maximum savings. EnerNOC's new packages have been designed to give visibility into all three cost drivers in a single platform, while at the same time creating budget to reduce or eliminate out-of-pocket costs through demand response or supply financing," said Micah Remley, Vice President of Product Strategy and Technology at EnerNOC.
EnerNOC's energy intelligence software includes seven core areas of functionality:
Utility bill management: consolidates bills, tracks costing trends, and identifies and reports bill errors.
Supply management: accrues energy costs against budgets, and allows users to view pricing data and evaluate risk through scenario planning.
Visibility and reporting: visualizes real-time energy data in graphs, reports, and dashboards, automates ENERGY STAR reporting, and tracks KPIs.
Facility optimization: compares facilities against industry benchmarks, ranks facility performance, runs analytics on key metrics, and identifies energy efficiency measures.
Project management: tracks performance against baseline, measures and verifies projects, and helps to build the business cases for new investments.
Demand management: sends alerts on demand thresholds, analyzes where and when peaks occur, quantifies the cost impact of peak demand, and forecasts new facility and system peaks.
- Demand response: maximizes payments from participation in regional demand response programs, and tracks and manages payments.
Enterprises can subscribe to EnerNOC's software on a monthly, per site basis. EnerNOC's basic package gives users the functionality needed to understand energy use and access to customer support and training resources. The standard package includes all features of the basic package, plus site-specific tariff-based budgeting and visibility, facility optimization, and increased access to EnerNOC's energy experts. EnerNOC's professional package includes additional capabilities including predictive analytics and a designated EnerNOC advisor.

Additional supporting commentary:
"EnerNOC previously offered three core software products to customers: demand response software DemandSMART, energy efficiency software EfficiencySMART and energy procurement software Supply SMART. Although these solutions led EnerNOC to receiving best-in-class scores for demand response and energy-consuming asset control in Verdantix studies, customers were forced to mix and match the products they wanted to purchase based on their specific requirements. Now, EnerNOC offers elements of all three former software products in one single package. This enables customers to prioritize and implement the actionable outputs produced by the software." - Verdantix, EnerNOC Gets the Focus Right With New Software Strategy, June 2014
