EnerNOC and Electricity North West Limited Sign Five-Year Demand Response Agreement

LONDON and BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - May 18, 2011) - EnerNOC, Inc. (NASDAQ: ENOC), the leading provider of demand response applications and services, today announced that it will provide demand response capacity to Electricity North West Limited, a major distribution network operator that delivers power to 2.4 million domestic and industrial customers in the North West of England, including Greater Manchester and Cumbria. This five-year agreement will promote efficient electricity use within Electricity North West's service territory and enable regional businesses and organisations to be paid to reduce their energy usage when capacity is needed to support the grid.

"With rising energy demand and a national imperative to reduce carbon emissions, smart grid solutions like demand response can make a real difference," said Paul Bircham, Electricity North West Customer Strategy and Regulation Director. "We see this programme as an opportunity to work more closely with our commercial and industrial customers while introducing them to the benefits of managing energy demand, and we are pleased to be working with EnerNOC in the process."

EnerNOC works with every facility in its DemandSMART™ network to develop an energy curtailment plan that is customised to site-specific energy usage. When dispatched by a distribution network operator, like Electricity North West, EnerNOC manages its portfolio of participating sites in real-time to ensure curtailment plans are met. Demand response creates payments for programme participants while helping to relieve system constraints, lower the cost of energy for all ratepayers, and encourage more efficient energy usage across the grid.

"The United Kingdom is in the process of creating one of the world's most advanced, low-carbon electricity grids. Electricity North West is participating actively in that transition by encouraging energy users to use electricity more strategically," said David Brewster, President of EnerNOC. "The UK's Department of Energy and Climate Change has indicated that demand response will be an important part of energy market reforms, but Electricity North West is already ahead of the curve. We value its leadership in demand-side management and look forward to working together."

EnerNOC provides energy management applications and services throughout the United Kingdom, the United States, and Canada. In the United Kingdom, EnerNOC also provides demand response capacity to National Grid and UK Power Networks. For more information, please visit
