“The NewEnergy Alliance SM is committed to creating Energy Responsive BuildingsSM by integrating building automation systems with real-time energy market data and pricing signals,” said Leighton Wolffe, Vice President of Alliances and Strategy for Constellation NewEnergy. “This commitment to developing and implementing enterprise level energy solutions and technologies will deliver advanced energy expertise and innovative tools that today’s customers need to identify and leverage the energy in our built environment.”
The New Energy Alliance SM will act as an open forum exchanging new ideas, developments, and opportunities. This will be a tremendous benefit to LonMark’s members, who are looking to expand their participation in demand response programs worldwide.
In an effort to address the constant changes in technologies, LonMark International is in the early stages of developing a new program, which will allow LonMark to work with third party organizations and companies on complimentary technologies. As such, the NewEnergy AllianceSM is the first in a series of non-exclusive relationships.
