EnerNOC, Inc. (NASDAQ: ENOC), the world’s leading provider of demand response applications and solutions, today announced that Kimberly-Clark Inc. has joined its network of facilities providing demand response capacity to the Ontario Power Authority (OPA). Kimberly-Clark will use EnerNOC’s DemandSMART™ application to reduce energy usage at its Huntsville, Ontario mill when demand for electricity is at its peak or capacity is needed elsewhere on the grid. Through its participation, Kimberly-Clark will provide enough capacity to power more than 2,500 homes.
“Comprehensive energy management is an important part of Kimberly-Clark’s sustainability program, and EnerNOC has been a welcome partner in those efforts,” said David Bernd, manager of Kimberly-Clark’s Huntsville mill. “Our goal is to reduce energy consumption by achieving best-in-class energy-efficiency targets, and we appreciate the opportunity to support the Province’s electricity grid by managing our energy usage through demand response.”
Both the OPA and Kimberly-Clark have set high goals for electricity demand conservation. Through DemandSMART, Kimberly-Clark will help to maintain reliable and affordable electricity supply throughout the Province by temporarily shutting down the majority of its electricity usage at its northern Ontario tissue manufacturing facility during times of peak demand. Kimberly-Clark worked with EnerNOC staff to implement the program as a part of its overall strategic plan. Through its operational flexibility and commitment to the program, Kimberly-Clark maintains high levels of customer service while significantly reducing its energy usage.
“Large manufacturers like Kimberly-Clark realize that a short-term change in energy usage can have a long-term impact on the electricity grid,” said Tim Healy, Chairman and CEO of EnerNOC. “Demand response has become a best practice for many leading manufacturers, and we are seeing more businesses incorporate it into their enterprise-wide operating plans.”
