LONDON, Dec. 1, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EnerNOC, Inc. (Nasdaq:ENOC), an international leader in data-driven energy management solutions, today announced its participation in UK Power Networks' Low Carbon London project, which was awarded £24.26 million this week by Ofgem. The project, which is described as a "smart city" initiative for London, will run from January 2011 through June 2014. EnerNOC UK Limited will participate in the project by providing its DemandSMART™ application and services to commercial, institutional, and industrial energy users in London.

"Demand response is a proven and scalable solution to create more efficient and reliable electricity networks," said David Brewster, President of EnerNOC. "We are excited to assist UK Power Networks and the City of London to adopt best practices in active network management and achieve ambitious sustainability goals that will help lead the UK toward a low carbon energy future."

In addition to incorporating demand-side management resources into the electricity grid, the Low Carbon London project is designed to facilitate the adoption of other low carbon and energy saving initiatives including electric vehicles, heat pumps, micro-generation, and smart meter installations. As one of several partners selected by UK Power Networks, EnerNOC will draw upon its deep experience and growing network of commercial, institutional, and industrial sites to provide demand response capacity for the duration of the project. UK Power Networks provides power to a quarter of the UK's population through its electricity distribution networks in London, as well as the South East and East of England.

"The success of this bid is tremendous news for sustainability in London," said Basil Scarsella, Chief Executive of UK Power Networks. "It means we can start developing an electricity network that not only supports London's existing and planned low carbon strategies, but can also accommodate the many different demands on the network we will face in 2020. We are delighted Ofgem recognized the strength of our bid and the tremendous potential London offers as the test bed for a low carbon project."
