automated demand response

Through its US subsidiary EnerNOC, Enel has signed a deal to help reduce energy use during peak periods in buildings in New York.

EnerNOC has been selected by property developer GlenWood Management for the provision of demand response services as from this coming US summer.

The project will help Glenwood Management to reduce energy costs and maximise financial returns across its luxury, residential and rental properties.

The project also forms part of efforts by GlenWood Management to contribute towards effective management of the city’s electric grid.

The two companies have been in partnership over the past five years. Under the partnership, Enel has helped GlenWood Management to construct and operate 6.3MW of battery energy storage capacity and 2MW of solar-plus-storage systems.

Real time operation of the distributed energy resources has been achieved through EnerNOC’s Distributed Energy Network Optimisation System.

Josh London, VP of Management, Glenwood Management, said: “We are expanding our partnership with Enel X by adding demand response to the portfolio of solutions that we are leveraging to reduce our energy costs, improve the resiliency of our buildings for our tenants, and support the stability of the power grid.

“Enel X provides differentiated solutions incorporating both traditional demand response and optimised distributed energy resources such as storage and solar. We look forward to continuing to expand our relationship with Enel X as we continue to explore new, cutting edge energy management solutions that allow us to improve our economics and efficiency and deliver a better tenant experience.”
