How EnerNOC is Evolving Smart Grids and Building Energy Management

How EnerNOC is Evolving Smart Grids and Building Energy Management | Broadband in America | Scoop.it

In addition to grid management, EnerNOC is also using demand reduction as a stepping stone to enter the broader field of energy management, to run the buildings and campuses of its clients. This gives EnerNOC a broader marketplace, for sure, but also brings it into head-on competition with bigger, deeper-pocketed incumbents such as Johnson Controls, IBM and Siemens.

 

It's been a natural extension of EnerNOC's expertise. As the company has grown, its software engineers have had to master an increasing diversity of software standards, control protocols, and other arcana -- the code that runs offices, buildings, and the machines inside them. Expertise in these software layers has opened up a new frontier the EnerNOC: smart building systems.

 

"We want to drive towards a goal of 'persistent commissioning,' " said Healy, where EnerNOC provides not just demand reduction services but real-time management of building systems.

 

The approach permits on-the-fly performance optimization, as well as the ability to detect faults. By mapping regular user patterns -- escalators are always off from midnight 'til 6 a.m., for example -- software can learn to take action if, for instance, an escalator motor energizes at 3 a.m.

 

"Managers have information systems for their finances, sales, manufacturing, practically every aspect of their operations," said Healy, "Everything except energy. There needs to be better intelligence for the customer and utilities."
