EnerNOC Inc. extended its contract with Genesis Energy to deliver sub-second automated demand response (AutoDR) on New Zealand's North and South Islands. This new agreement extends the North Island component of the contract through 2015.

EnerNOC Demand Manager provides utilities with software-as-a-service tools to manage their demand response programs, including real-time load monitoring, dispatching applications, customizable reports, measurement and verification applications, and numerous professional services.
EnerNOC entered the New Zealand Electricity Market in July 2011 when it acquired Energy Response.
In March 2012, EnerNOC expanded its New Zealand footprint to include the country's South Island through its initial agreement with Genesis Energy to provide AutoDR, referred to as Interruptible Load in that market.
When an under-frequency event is triggered, electric demand from commercial and industrial facilities that participate in this advanced program is automatically reduced from the grid in less than one second. After this demand response event, EnerNOC's AutoDR participants are then restored in a staggered fashion, limiting further stress on the grid that would occur if they were all to come back online at once.
