"EnerNOC's Utility Solutions offerings have traditionally focused on providing utilities with turnkey demand response and energy efficiency resources, including everything from sales and marketing to enablement and delivery, but our cloud-based approach makes it easy for innovative companies like ERM Power to offer a branded experience, leveraged by the extensibility of the EnerNOC platform," said Tim Healy, Chairman and CEO of EnerNOC.
ERM Power is the first electricity retailer in Australia to adopt EnerNOC's demand-side management (DSM) software to help its customers manage energy consumption.
"ERM Power has grown to become Australia's fourth largest seller of electricity in the National Electricity Market by providing consistently outstanding service to our customers," said Mitch Anderson, CEO Electricity Sales, ERM Power.
"We were ranked the number one electricity retailer in Australia for customer service to businesses last year. Our goal is to retain that market-leading position by providing quality services to our customers, like EnerNOC's state-of-the-art energy management software and enablement services.

The visualization tools and analytical features of EnerNOC's solutions will help us actively engage our customers in our DSM programs and enable them to use energy more efficiently and further reduce their energy expenditure."
Using EnerNOC's Utility Portal, ERM Power's traders will dispatch customer demand response resources to mitigate price spikes in the NEM, helping to lower costs for all ERM Power customers. In addition, the company can monitor its customers' performance in real time to ensure that energy reduction targets are being met. DemandSMART also gives customers participating in the program access to their real-time energy data and dispatch performance data through a web portal and mobile/tablet applications.
