Boston-based EnerNOC Inc. says that the Burlington School District in Burlington, Vt., has deployed the company's EfficiencySMART Insight application to drive operational efficiency and reduce annual energy spending across eight of its schools.

According to EnerNOC, EfficiencySMART Insight is a cloud-based energy management solution that continuously analyzes building energy data to identify energy inefficiencies. EnerNOC analysts then work with the schools to develop appropriate low- and no-cost energy efficiency measures, such as avoiding peak demand charges, smarter start-up and night-setback schedules, preventive maintenance, and other changes that have a meaningful impact on annual energy spend, the company adds.

Three of the district's eight schools are already utilizing EnerNOC's DemandSMART application to reduce energy use during periods of peak demand.

"Based on our demand response partnership with EnerNOC, we know that they are focused on delivering results, and we're confident that deploying EfficiencySMART will deliver the savings we need to have a meaningful impact on our annual budget," says Terry Bailey, director of operations for the Burlington School District. "In addition, because data for three of our sites was already streaming into EnerNOC's platform, the economics and deployment time for EfficiencySMART were even more compelling."
