New York—August 6, 2013—10gen, the MongoDB company, today announced that EnerNOC, a leading provider of energy intelligence software, has selected MongoDB to enhance its big data capabilities and support its current core data discovery platform to provide a more robust suite of services for its utility, commercial, institutional and industrial (C&I) customers.

EnerNOC delivers management services designed to reduce real-time demand for electricity, increase energy efficiency, improve energy supply transparency in competitive markets and mitigate emissions. The company’s global Network Operations Center (NOC) collects and evaluates nearly 1.5 billion energy data points per month to deliver reliable demand response capacity and energy savings opportunities for customers.

MongoDB’s agile and scalable data platform is expected to improve EnerNOC’s operational efficiency. MongoDB will provide EnerNOC’s data analysts, developers and engineers with a flexible environment to identify new avenues for intelligence-driven efficiency decisions and added cost savings for its customers. Through its use of MongoDB, EnerNOC expects to enhance the quality, depth and flexibility of its data analysis.

“With the overwhelming amount of raw energy usage data coming in, we needed a solution that allowed us to maximize our analysis in a flexible and scalable way,” said Hugh Scandrett, Vice President of Engineering at EnerNOC. “MongoDB has helped us add a new dimension to the data analysis coming in, by gleaning new insights from that data and ultimately guiding our customers to make smarter energy decisions.”

EnerNOC leverages its energy intelligence portfolio in two distinct ways. First, it works with utility-side systems operators to identify operational inefficiencies and lower the demand for power, effectively taking excess energy off the grid. The company also helps a growing portfolio of private enterprises to reduce their energy costs and carbon footprint through smarter energy usage.

“For organizations to make smarter, data-driven decisions, they must be able to successfully capture and analyze fast-moving, multi-dimensional data,” said Max Schireson, CEO at 10gen. “We are excited to help EnerNOC bring more flexibility to its portfolio of utility and enterprise customers as they look to optimize efficiency, conserve energy and save money.”

MongoDB is the open-source, document database popular among developers and IT professionals due to its agile and scalable approach. MongoDB provides a JSON data model with dynamic schemas, extensive driver support, auto-sharding, built-in replication and high availability, full and flexible index support, rich queries, aggregation, in-place updates and GridFS for large file storage.
