EnerNOC Inc., a provider of energy management applications, has announced a new partnership with Numenta, a machine intelligence company.

According to the companies, this partnership couples Numenta's Grokstreaming analytics solution with EnerNOC's cloud-based software to create opportunities for additional demand response participation by commercial, institutional, and industrial customers with variable load profiles and increased ability to detect energy efficiency faults and anomalies.

Further, the companies say this partnership will enable EnerNOC to more effectively predict and monetize the electricity demand of its portfolio. For example, Grok's capabilities will integrate with EnerNOC's DemandSMART application to optimize the level at which demand response customers are offered into frequency reserve markets.

EnerNOC plans to seek additional partnerships with innovative firms such as Numenta that continue to allow the company to harness big data to change the way the world uses energy.

"Working with Numenta is the start to building a world-class partner network that will accelerate smart grid innovation," says EnerNOC Chairman and CEO Tim Healy. "To date, energy data has largely been a black box for consumers and utilities alike, and we look forward to pulling back the curtain and turning energy data into actionable business intelligence and new opportunities to drive results for our customers."
