EnerNOC, Inc., the world’s leading provider of energy management applications for the smart grid, today announced that it has completed installation of its EfficiencySMART energy management software in over 480 state-owned buildings in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. This milestone marks completion of the installation phase of a $10 million contract between EnerNOC and the Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources (DOER) in which EnerNOC has provided a comprehensive Enterprise Energy Management System (EEMS) to reduce energy costs across state-owned facilities. The installation phase included set-up of approximately 1,300 meters in over 480 buildings across 43 sites.
In total, more than two million data points from these facilities are now being streamed each week to EnerNOC’s Network Operations Center. EfficiencySMART Insight collects energy data from each building, applies EnerNOC’s automatic fault detection and business intelligence application to analyze the data, and combines the expertise of an EnerNOC energy analyst to deliver a prioritized list of actionable energy efficiency measures.
This deployment was initiated by DOER through funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) to further advance the state’s Leading by Example (LBE) Program. The next phase of the deployment, in which the energy use of community colleges, trial courts, and other state-owned office buildings will be brought online, is being funded in part by the Massachusetts Division of Capital Asset Management (DCAM).
Participants in the program include Westfield State College, Fitchburg State University, Massachusetts Hospital School, Bridgewater State University, Massachusetts Trial Courts, the Bureau of State Office Buildings, and many others across the state.
“Overall feedback from participating sites has been quite positive,” said Eric Friedman, Director of the Leading by Example Program for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. “By implementing EEMS, we are identifying numerous savings opportunities that can be addressed by simple changes in how facilities manage their day-to-day energy use, and helping meet the state’s energy, economic, and environmental commitments.”
“EnerNOC’s tools provide visibility into the individual energy usage of the buildings on our campus,” said Mary Beth McKenzie, Executive Director of Administrative Services at Fitchburg State University. “Analyzing daily usage means I can identify problems and bring them to closure much quicker than I could when I was simply getting monthly energy bills and finding out about anomalies sometimes months after they’d started.”
“This was a landmark deal for EnerNOC that put EfficiencySMART on the map as a leading enterprise energy management solution that is uniquely positioned to extract business intelligence from energy data, and a contract expansion funded directly by the Commonwealth is a testament to the overall value we have been able to deliver,” said Tim Healy, Chairman and CEO.
Both Eric Friedman and Mary Beth McKenzie will be speaking about the origins of this initiative and the implementation process at EnergySMART 2012 in Boston on October 2, 2012. Stephen Kennefick, Power Plant Supervisor, Massachusetts Hospital School, and Joseph LoBuono, Director of Operations and Facilities, Fitchburg State University, who have deployed EfficiencySMART as part of the DOER rollout, will also be part of the discussion. Conference registration will be open online through September 30th and day passes are available. For more information, visit energysmartconference.com/.
