EnerNOC and Numenta Announce Innovative Partnership

(ENP Newswire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) ENP Newswire - 31 January 2013 Release date- 29012013 - BOSTON, MA - Today at DistribuTECH, EnerNOC, Inc. (NASDAQ: ENOC), a leading provider of energy management applications, announced a partnership with Numenta, a breakthrough machine intelligence company.


This partnership couples Numenta's Grok streaming analytics solution with EnerNOC's cloud-based software to create opportunities for additional demand response participation by commercial, institutional, and industrial customers with variable load profiles and increased ability to detect energy efficiency faults and anomalies.

This partnership will enable EnerNOC to more effectively predict and monetize the electricity demand of its portfolio. For example, Grok's capabilities will integrate with EnerNOC's DemandSMART application to optimize the level at which demand response customers are offered into frequency reserve markets. EnerNOC participates in frequency reserve markets that involve taking large loads off the grid in less than a second to maintain grid frequency.

'We're delighted that EnerNOC has selected Grok,' said Numenta CEO, Rami Branitzky. 'EnerNOC's ability to capture high-quality, real-time end user energy data enhanced with Grok's ability to automatically model and continuously learn from this data is a leading example of how data can be used to transform energy management. EnerNOC's open architecture made for a seamless integration, and we're excited to hit the ground running.' EnerNOC plans to seek additional partnerships with innovative firms such as Numenta that continue to allow the company to harness big data to change the way the world uses energy.

'Working with Numenta is the start to building a world-class partner network that will accelerate smart grid innovation,' said EnerNOC Chairman and CEO, Tim Healy. 'To date, energy data has largely been a black box for consumers and utilities alike, and we look forward to pulling back the curtain and turning energy data into actionable business intelligence and new opportunities to drive results for our customers.' To learn more about the partnership, visit EnerNOC's booth #3051. DistribuTECH is the premier annual conference for power industry professionals, focusing on energy distribution infrastructure and related topics.

Featured Whitepapers

Is Your Network Ready for the Internet of Everything?

The telephone industry is undergoing a dramatic transformation that began with the introduction of IP-based data networks in the early 1990s and then with Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) in the late 1990s, and it now includes all forms ofvoice, video, and messaging communications.

Building a Secure and Scalable Multimedia IP Exchange

As fixed and mobile operators increasingly move to IP-based networks, the complexity required to interconnect these networks grows dramatically. Faced with increasing competition from all corners and constant challenge to grow revenues, operators are struggling with the variety and disparities in partner and customer networks.

How Carriers Can Optimize for LTE Roaming

Connectivity between mobile network operators (MNO) in 4G LTE is much more complex than it was in legacy networks.This complexity is primarily due to the change in focus. LTE is not a voice-focused roaming environment, but rather a datacentric environment.
