EnerNOC, a Boston, MA-based energy management solutions provider specializing in demand response, recently announced that its purchase of wind, solar, and other renewable energy credits now offsets 100% of its carbon emissions footprint.
David Brewster, EnerNOC’s Co-Founder and President, commented, “EnerNOC is committed to environmental stewardship and is glad to have strengthened this commitment by purchasing renewable energy credits to offset our carbon dioxide emissions and associated impact on global warming. Achieving carbon neutrality broadens our leadership in the energy management industry, and is fundamental to our values both as a company and as concerned citizens. We encourage other companies to follow suit in this commitment and to help us further establish demand response as an environmentally clean peak load reduction resource for electricity providers.”
EnerNOC offsets millions of pounds of carbon dioxide pollution this year with the purchase of Green-e® certified wind, solar, and other renewable energy credits from within each of the regions across the U.S. in which it operates. These clean energy credits offset 100% of both the emissions generated by EnerNOC in its daily business operations and by the portfolio of generation assets it manages through its technology during demand response events.
EnerNOC chose 3 Phases Energy Services, a national renewable energy marketing and development company, to supply its renewable energy credits. “EnerNOC’s commitment to the environment paves the way for other energy management providers to do the right thing and make a positive impact for clean energy supply,” said Erik Rothenberg, Managing Director and Chief Green Officer of 3 Phases Energy Services.
In addition, EnerNOC joins other leading organizations like Starbucks, HSBC North America, Johnson & Johnson, and the California State University System as a partner in the Environmental Protection Agency’s Green Power Partnership, a voluntary program which encourages the use of green power as a way to reduce the environmental impacts associated with conventional electricity use.
