EnerNOC Launches Green Button Initiative Open Data Project
Company Makes Anonymized Energy Data From 100 Buildings Available for Open
Source Collaboration to Advance Energy Management Innovation
BOSTON, April 4, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EnerNOC, Inc. (Nasdaq:ENOC), a
leading provider of cloud-based energy management software, today announced
its newest EnerNOC Open project, Open Data. As part of its participation in
the Green Button Initiative and in order to encourage open source
collaboration that advances energy management innovation, EnerNOC has scrubbed
and anonymized one year of granular energy data from 100 large buildings.
Developers and engineers can now access the data for non-commercial purposes
such as research, integration testing, and hackathons.
Green Button is an energy industry initiative that responds to a White House
call-to-action to provide customers with easy access to their energy use data
in a simple format. The release of EnerNOC's Open Data project is timed with
the start of the EnerNOC-sponsored Boston CleanWeb Hackathon and Data Jam
beginning tomorrow that brings together entrepreneurs and developers to tackle
problems at the intersection of energy, sustainability, and the Internet. The
Hackathon is a three-day sprint to build prototype applications and business
ideas, and the Data Jam is a 90-day marathon culminating on June 26 that will
result in production-ready products and fledgling businesses.
"Releasing EnerNOC data in Green Button format is another step toward
achieving our goal of creating an ecosystem of innovative developers
collaborating to advance energy management technology," said Hugh Scandrett,
Vice President of Engineering at EnerNOC. "Making this anonymized data
available is just one example of how EnerNOC is committed to 'walking the
walk' when it comes to open source collaboration."
EnerNOC maintains a repository that currently includes over 50 billion energy
readings from the thousands of commercial and industrial sites on its platform
worldwide, and has invested more than $160 million in its technology and
EnerNOC currently has over 20 open engineering positions in the Boston area.
Details on these positions and EnerNOC's Green Button initiative participation
