Landmark FERC Ruling Approves Market-Based Compensation for Demand Response

EnerNOC Well Positioned to Serve and Develop Price-Based Demand Response Market

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - March 16, 2011) - EnerNOC, Inc. (NASDAQ: ENOC), a leading provider of commercial, institutional, and industrial demand response applications and services, commends yesterday's landmark ruling on demand response issued by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC). The ruling requires wholesale market operators to pay demand response the same price that generators are paid, referred to as the locational marginal price (LMP), when doing so will reduce costs for all customers. In its ruling, FERC stated, "This approach for compensating demand response resources helps to ensure the competitiveness of organized wholesale energy markets and remove barriers to the participation of demand response resources, thus ensuring just and reasonable wholesale rates."

With over 5,300 megawatts (MW) under management as of December 31, 2010, more than 900 MW of which are also under agreement to respond to price signals, EnerNOC is well positioned to deliver additional value to its customers and secure new business. EnerNOC helps its customers participate in price-based demand response through its DemandSMART™ application, which supports all types of demand response. DemandSMART's web-based interface helps customers maximize the benefits of participating in price-based demand response by creating customized opportunities based on users' settings for energy reduction, curtailment duration, and payment requirements.

"EnerNOC has long advocated for full LMP compensation for demand response, and we commend FERC for its leadership throughout this very thorough rulemaking process. We believe FERC's decision validates demand response as an important resource for maintaining reliable and efficient grid operation, and we are pleased to have this opportunity to deliver additional value to our customers," said David Brewster, President of EnerNOC. "We also think it is appropriate to acknowledge the work of the late Dr. Alfred Kahn, who passed away after submitting extensive testimony supporting the FERC's adoption of the rule issued yesterday. His scholarship in this rulemaking is yet another example of his incredible contributions to the fields of economics and public utility regulation, and we wish he could be here to witness his success."
