Memphis schools teams with EnerNOC on energy efficiency

Over the course of the initial three-year contract, the system is expected to provide an estimated five percent annual energy savings for the school system

Boston, August 24, 2011 — Energy efficiency provider EnerNOC, Inc. deployed its EfficiencySMART Insight application in order to reduce overall energy consumption across 25 locations within the Memphis City Schools system.

The energy efficiency system leverages real-time energy-use data to identify and prioritize energy savings opportunities, while also offering Memphis City Schools system-wide and school-level visibility into energy usage and spending.

Over the course of the initial three-year contract, the system is expected to provide an estimated five percent annual energy savings for the school system.

EnerNOC's system offers large, multi-site organizations like Memphis City Schools real-time visibility into energy usage and costs across their entire portfolio of facilities.

Unlike programs that focus on capital-intensive equipment upgrades, the application allows schools, commercial property, retail outlets, and manufacturers to rapidly identify and harvest a range of low and no-cost energy savings opportunities, reduce energy spikes and related demand charges, optimize energy efficiency investments and strategy, and enhance measurement and verification of ongoing and future energy efficiency projects.

EfficiencySMART Insight also enables customers to disseminate real-time alerts and alarms that help avoid potential inefficiencies and minimize payback periods for resource-constrained institutions.
