Highlights of EnergySmart Conference

April 15, 2015 By Josh Kessler

EnerNOC hosted its EnergySMART 2015 conference in Philadelphia in March. The company posted some of the key takeaways from the conference on its website, most notably:

  • Businesses are not leveraging energy efficiency programs and energy management strategies to their full potential. Utility energy efficiency incentive programs had $2 billion in unspent funds last year.
  • Data management and automation are vital to effective energy management.
  • Businesses make decisions based on their bottom lines. Energy managers seeking buy-in from executives need to demonstrate the returns on investment from their proposals in dollars, not kilowatts.
  • Behavioral changes, including demand response, can have major impacts.
