EnerNOC Expands Energy Intelligence Software Contract With Ergon Energy
Australian Utility to Expand Software Deployment to Over 85,000 Sites
BOSTON, Feb. 3, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EnerNOC, Inc. (Nasdaq:ENOC), a leading provider of energy intelligence software (EIS), announced today that Australia's Ergon Energy will expand its deployment of EnerNOC's software to the entire Ergon Energy commercial customer base of approximately 85,000 sites. With this expansion, Ergon Energy will gain unparalleled insight into its commercial customers' energy use that will allow the utility to deliver highly targeted, value-added products and services, such as tailored energy efficiency recommendations unique to a customer's industry, size, and load profile, resulting in increased customer engagement and overall satisfaction.
"Unlike the residential market, the commercial segment includes over 2,000 different business types, which makes it difficult for utilities to deliver products and services," said Tim Healy, Chairman and CEO of EnerNOC. "With energy intelligence software, utilities like Ergon Energy can better understand their commercial customers and engage them through personalized, actionable recommendations."
"Customer interest has been strong and we look forward to expanding the software deployment across our entire commercial customer portfolio," said Brett Milne, Group Manager, Retail Customer Experience and Marketing at Ergon Energy. "From multi- site commercial real estate to individual quick-serve restaurants, we've seen value from customers engaging more deeply with their energy usage information."
