Boston-based EnerNOC Inc. has announced that Denver Public Schools (DPS) has deployed the company's DemandSMART and EfficiencySMART Insight applications across the school district's 24 facilities in Denver, Colo.

According to EnerNOC, DemandSMART enables the school district to reduce energy use during periods of peak demand and receive payments through Xcel Colorado's demand response program, while EfficiencySMART Insight's analytics and diagnostics identify energy savings opportunities.

"With EfficiencySMART, we can see how much energy each of our buildings is using in real time,” says Jim Faes, DPS’ director of sustainability. “In the past, we had no idea how much energy we were using until we got the bill a month later. Now we can see changes in energy use as they happen and make corrections along the way that result in less waste and lower costs.”
