EnerNOC's DemandSMART(TM) Provides Much Needed Grid Relief During Western US
Heat Waves

BOSTON, July 10, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EnerNOC, Inc. (Nasdaq:ENOC), a
leading provider of energy intelligence software, today announced that since
June 24, 2013, it has dispatched approximately 850 megawatts of demand
response capacity – roughly equivalent to eight fossil-fuel burning peaking
power plants – in the western United States, largely in response to continued
heat waves that have threatened grid stability or caused prices to spike
throughout the region. Hundreds of commercial, institutional, industrial, and
agricultural customers in California, Idaho, Utah, and New Mexico were
deployed across fourteen dispatches, helping to restore system balance and
stabilize prices.

"Because buildings retain heat, it takes more energy on day three, four, and
five of a heat wave to cool the same amount of space. This heat wave has been
unrelenting in many areas, taxing the grid and creating an increased need for
power," explained Tim Healy, Chairman and CEO of EnerNOC. "By shedding
flexible load strategically across thousands of sites, we helped to ensure
that stable, reliable power was delivered to millions of people affected by
this heat wave. And with the addition of the enhanced tools and technology in
our new Network Operations Center to facilitate these dispatches, we were able
to ensure seamless execution with even greater confidence."

Demand response as a resource is now integrated into many utilities'
portfolios so that energy use associated with heat waves of this nature can be
managed without utilizing more expensive peaking power plants. As utilities
plan to address system peaks that are most frequently set during the summer,
they are increasingly turning to demand response as a valuable tool.
