EnerNOC and Goby Partner to Offer Industry-Leading Energy Intelligence Software Platform for Commercial Real Estate
Marc Realty & AEW Capital Management are Already Leveraging Joint Solution to Improve Sustainability and Facilitate Reporting
BOSTON, Nov. 29, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EnerNOC, Inc. (Nasdaq:ENOC), a leading provider of energy intelligence software (EIS) and demand response solutions, and Goby, creator of a smart analytics platform for commercial real estate, announced today the formation of a strategic partnership designed to bring to market an energy intelligence software solution tailored specifically to the commercial real estate (CRE) industry. Under the terms of the partnership, EnerNOC will resell Goby's sustainability and reporting capabilities, and Goby will resell EnerNOC's energy intelligence software packages, as well as leverage EnerNOC's reverse auction platform to help Goby customers buy energy at the best possible price.
The companies have already signed joint deals with Marc Realty and AEW Capital Management, delivering a comprehensive platform that empowers building owners and operators to improve net operating income by reducing operational expenses and dramatically decreasing the amount of time and effort required for robust sustainability reporting.
"More than any other industry, CRE customers understand the direct linkage between strong sustainability scores and maximizing returns on investment. Goby's sustainability reporting capabilities and bill data automation tools were purpose- built to help companies report to leading sustainability standards quickly and easily," said Micah Remley, SVP of Product and General Manager of EnerNOC's EIS Business. "That functionality, coupled with EnerNOC's data analytics platform, gives customers the ability to find meaningful operational savings and ultimately improve sustainability scores. It is a highly compelling value proposition for CRE firms looking for a competitive edge."
"EnerNOC and Goby both have strong reputations as industry leaders in the CRE space, and the early feedback we've received from joint customers confirms that together, we can offer our customers a truly unrivaled opportunity to save time, save money, and increase the overall value of their portfolios," said Chris Happ, CEO of Goby.
The integrated platform streamlines the collection of data necessary to report to ENERGY STAR, Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmark (GRESB), and Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED), and also provides the data analytics and tools to improve scores over time. The platform can also accommodate new reporting and benchmarking requirements as they emerge, as well as custom reporting requirements to ensure continuous support of evolving customer needs.
