EnerNOC Continues To Promote Open Technology Standards With Participation In OpenADR 2.0 Profile B Interoperability Test Event

BOSTON, May 23, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EnerNOC, Inc. (Nasdaq:ENOC), a leading provider of energy intelligence software, today announced that it participated in a successful OpenADR Alliance test event using the high-performance PUSH protocol, XMPP. This test event was significant because it demonstrated interoperability of the advanced capabilities of OpenADR 2.0 Profile B, including telemetry and XMPP, which will ultimately help demand response penetrate further into the commercial, institutional, and industrial building market. The event was hosted at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in Gaithersburg, Md.

Profile B is designed for high-end embedded devices that support a wide range of demand response services and markets. XMPP is advantageous because of its reliability and its ability to provide secure, low-latency bidirectional communication, which is essential for ancillary services applications where rapid response is required. Profile B also includes essential reporting features for telemetry and feedback that are necessary for reliable demand response and asset monitoring.

Several OpenADR Alliance members participated in the event, which was the first test of XMPP interoperability between OpenADR vendors. "EnerNOC is leading the drive toward standardization in enterprise energy management, and we're happy to see Alliance members embrace XMPP as an appropriate open mechanism for reliable demand response communication," said Hugh Scandrett, Vice President of Engineering at EnerNOC. "The success of this Profile B test supports our long-standing assertion that XMPP is an ideal transport protocol for demand response and energy data communication, and demonstrates that OpenADR 2.0 is addressing communication requirements that are critical for maintaining a reliable grid."

EnerNOC has employed the XMPP protocol since 2009 when the company launched PowerTalk, a tool that helps end users gain insight into their energy consumption by actively monitoring signals sent by smart meters or other intelligent devices. The tool allows smart devices to send status messages at constant, repeated intervals.
