New Report Shows Energy Intelligence Software Critical to Enterprise Energy Management
BOSTON, Jan. 26, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EnerNOC, Inc. (Nasdaq:ENOC), a leading provider of energy intelligence software (EIS), today announced that Forbes Insights has issued a research report that provides insights into why energy management software is critical to helping enterprises reduce energy costs, mitigate risks, streamline compliance, and increase operational efficiency.
The report, "No More Wasted Energy: The Power of Energy Intelligence Software," published in association with EnerNOC, highlights several trends that stand to further increase demand for energy intelligence software and features interviews with executives from Blommer Chocolate, Boston Properties, California State University, and Sodexo.
"This report highlights issues that are vital across the organization, from energy managers to the CFO," said Bruce Rogers, Chief Insights Officer of Forbes Media. "Information technology has transformed energy into a controllable cost."
Key insights identified in the report include:
Most senior executives remain unaware of their annual energy costs, despite the fact that enterprises typically spend between 3% and 5% of their revenue on energy. Many enterprises spend as much as $500 million a year on energy.
Energy waste is a drain on corporate budgets. In total, building energy waste costs commercial and industrial entities $60 billion in unnecessary energy spend annually.
Managing energy effectively is complex. The cost of energy is more challenging to manage than the cost of most commodities. Nuances like peak demand charges and ongoing price volatility confound even the most proactive energy managers.
Software can solve the energy management problem for the enterprise. Companies that use energy intelligence software see clear bottom-line results stemming from real-time visibility into costs and usage, accurate accruals, and helpful insights that allow energy managers to proactively take action.
"Technology has been incredibly effective at increasing productivity and reducing operating costs across business functions within the enterprise - using energy intelligence software for energy management is no different. This report underscores how important it is for businesses to leverage an enterprise software solution to take control of energy costs, gain visibility into spend against budget, and forecast accurately," said Tim Healy, Chairman and CEO of EnerNOC.
