Con Edison Selects EnerNOC's Energy Intelligence Software for Large-Scale Energy Procurement
BOSTON, Jan. 19, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EnerNOC, Inc. (Nasdaq:ENOC), a leading provider of energy intelligence software (EIS), today announced that Consolidated Edison, Inc. (Con Edison), one of the largest investor-owned energy companies in the US, has successfully leveraged EnerNOC's online auction platform to procure approximately $1 billion in energy and capacity for its regulated utility subsidiaries, Consolidated Edison Company of New York, Inc. and Orange and Rockland Utilities.
Con Edison first began working with EnerNOC in 2005, participating in small electricity auctions that grew into larger procurements in subsequent years. In 2010, EnerNOC began helping Con Edison procure natural gas for its customers' annual and seasonal needs. This latest electricity purchase is EnerNOC's largest procurement for Con Edison to date.
"Con Edison needs to buy a significant amount of natural gas and electricity every year, so it's imperative that we secure the best price possible in each transaction," said Ivan Kimball, Vice President of Energy Management at Con Edison. "Moreover, as regulated utilities, we must ensure transparency and verification of our procurement processes. EnerNOC's energy intelligence software attracts bidders and provides the competition, scalability, and digital record our internal and external stakeholders require."
"Forward-thinking utilities like Con Edison choose EnerNOC because they seek a transparent, competitive energy procurement process," said Eric Erston, Vice President of Global Sales at EnerNOC. "When utilities work with EnerNOC to meet the energy purchasing needs of their customers, they can feel confident that they are securing the best available price in their energy transactions."
EnerNOC's procurement platform also includes indicative bid round (IBR) functionality and technology that dramatically streamline approval of new suppliers seeking to bid on a particular contract, a process that can otherwise take several months. Con Edison leveraged this capability to establish new agreements with bidders, which not only created a highly competitive and attractive immediate purchasing opportunity, but also provided long-term efficiency for Con Edison by making it faster and easier for suppliers to compete on future procurement contracts.
