EnerNOC Inc., a provider of energy management applications and services, has finalized an agreement with TransGrid, the New South Wales transmission network operator, to provide 35 MW of demand response capacity in the Sydney metropolitan area.

The demand management agreement between the two companies will help reduce peak demand and support Sydney's high-voltage electricity grid this coming summer, according to Peter McIntyre, managing director of TransGrid.

"By having the ability to shift the power consumption of some of Sydney's major energy users outside peak periods, TransGrid will be in the best position to respond to pressure on its existing transmission network during peak periods," says McIntyre.

In addition to maximizing demand response dispatch performance, EnerNOC says it enables participants in its demand response network to view and more actively manage their energy usage in real time.
