The London underground will use EnerNOCs demand response technology, according to the company.
The Tube is the largest user of electricity in London and the largest private user of electricity in the United Kingdom, according to the press release. EnerNOC will enable the Tube to participate in demand response programs that will reward it for using energy flexibly – such as using backup power capacity during times of peak demand – to lower overall demand on the National Grid.
The Tube, according to the release, will be able to manage use in a manner reducing the risk of outages as well as save money.
EnerNOC and PwC are trying to convince corporate executives that energy management is a financial issue that deserves attention at the highest levels of the organization.
