EnerNOC, global leader in smart energy management

Published on Monday, 7 August 2017

“With the inclusion of EnerNOC in the e-Solutions Global Business Line, we are strengthening our ability to benefit from the technological and digital evolution in progress in the energy sector and to open the way for the creation of new opportunities for innovative businesses, in response to the evolving needs of our customer base”

– Francesco Venturini, Head of Enel X

The digital frontier electrical services

The unstoppable evolution of digital technologies has driven Enel to look beyond the traditional limits of the role of a commodity supplier, typical of an electric utility.

So, we have decided to open ourselves up to the world of innovative services for the energy sector, a natural consequence of the digital transformation of industry and services.

Starting from these considerations, we strive to continue to develop solutions, with the objective to offer customers innovative and advanced services that are able to meet new requirements in terms of economic efficiency and sustainability.

“The merger of EnerNOC into the Enel Group reflects our strategic focus on technologies and services to customers and puts us at the forefront in the transformation of the energy sector”

– Francesco Venturini, Head of Enel X

This transaction allows us to bring a business model that covers, in particular, a significant part of the value chain in the context of services for the business segment within the Enel Group. It is a model that we can then export to markets where we are present, but that can also represent the key to access new markets.

The completion of the acquisition also enables us to incorporate more than 8,000 customers, 14,000 sites under management and a demand response capacity equal to a total of 6 GW. The portfolio not only covers the North American market and Europe, but also South-East Asia.

Beyond digital transformation

The introduction of software to measure, monitor and manage power allows consumers, in particular in the business segment, to play a key role in the operation of the electricity grid, in order to balance supply and demand and to make production more sustainable, while allowing better penetration of renewable sources.

Thanks to the digitalisation of the grid, sensors indicate the load peaks, while automated systems are able to divert or reduce the power toward strategic places, reducing the risk of overload. At the same time, smart tools and systems, such as displays or home networks, make it easier for customers to change their behaviour and to reduce consumption at peak times. All this translates into greater efficiency and cutting waste and costs.

“The energy market is evolving toward a disintermediation with respect to the role of utilities. Large groups are beginning to obtain supplies from the green energy market. EnerNoc will help us along this path”

– Francesco Venturini, Head of Enel X

The smart use of technology as a tool enabling new business models will help us to be a protagonist both in mature economies, as in the United States or Europe, and in emerging markets such as Africa. Here, for example, we are already engaged in offering new mini-grid and off-grid solutions, in the development of grids at urban and suburban level, as well as in the study applied to alternative systems of access to energy.

It is a new paradigm of energy that through digital innovation is changing the role of utilities, enabling innovative services and bringing sustainable and affordable electricity to an increasingly larger number of people.
