EnerNOC Inc. has entered into an agreement with the Australian distribution operator Ausgrid to administer its demand response program. Ausgrid's electricity network provides power to 1.6 million homes and businesses throughout the Sydney metropolitan area. This contract is an expansion of a pilot program originally begun in 2012.

Under the terms of the agreement, EnerNOC will administer the Ausgrid Dynamic Peak Rebate Program to Ausgrid's commercial, institutional and industrial customers. When called upon, customers will curtail energy use during dispatches. In addition to payments for their participation, customers will receive access to their real-time energy data through EnerNOC's DemandSMART cloud-based demand response application.

According to EnerNOC, Ausgrid is conducting this initial Dynamic Peak Rebate project with the aim of developing demand-side options as an alternative to investing in network infrastructure.

"In just three years after EnerNOC's entry, Australia has become our second-largest market," notes Tim Healy, chairman and CEO of EnerNOC. "Although the majority of our current presence is in Western Australia, key contracts like this agreement with Ausgrid provide EnerNOC a solid foothold into the eastern states where rising electricity prices and a pressing need for grid optimization make demand response very attractive."
