(Nasdaq:ENOC), a leading provider of energy management applications for the smart grid with offices throughout the United States, the United Kingdom, and Canada, hosted UK Climate Change Minister Greg Barker at the company's EnergySMART 2010 Conference from September 22-24th.

Minister Barker's visit followed announcements by the British government to expect new "Green Deal" legislation in the fall of 2010 that will bolster the nation's pledge to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 80 percent by 2050 and could create up to 250,000 jobs over the next 20 years.
"The UK needs to revolutionize the way electricity is used and generated to cut emissions and increase security of supply," said Barker. "Managing demand is a logical first step, so I was delighted to be invited to learn more about the pioneering work EnerNOC is doing in this area. I'm pleased EnerNOC has expanded its UK-based operations in order to bring its expertise to the UK's energy market."
During Barker's visit, EnerNOC's UK-based network was dispatched in response to electrical system needs in National Grid's Short Term Operating Reserve (STOR) market, as well as several regions across the United States.
"Minister Barker understands that energy management is not only good for the environment, it's good for the economy," said David Brewster, president of EnerNOC. "The United Kingdom has shown that it is committed to becoming an engine of change in the green business sector, as well as in energy efficiency and carbon management initiatives. We were honored to host Minister Barker for the first annual EnergySMART conference."
