Energy Reduction Asset™ (ERA) Market Tool provides analysis, reporting and guidance around untapped demand response energy value streams

January 29, 2013, Bedford Hills, NY - Joule Assets, a leading provider of energy market analysis, tools and financing, today announced the availability of its Energy Reduction Asset tm (ERA) Market Tools. A proprietary software platform, this technology will provide accurate, current and unbiased analysis of market cash flows nationwide. This is the first of a series of offerings, with the first solution centering on the demand response industry. Future releases will target categories including energy efficiency, renewable energy and carbon reduction.


"Bringing our clients value through Energy Reduction is a core component of our corporate strategy," said David Unger, COO of US Energy Group, an engineering and energy management controls company. "The insights Joule's ERA Market Tool gives us translate into business models that we can utilize to deliver more value for our clients. We are excited by the opportunities this brings US Energy in engaging with new clients and expanding our portfolio."

The ERA Market Tool is a web based system that will include meter and benchmarked data for those needing guidance in fine tuning a facility's curtailment capability. In addition, the product will also provide a critical peak pricing (CPP) tariff calculator that will help users easily understand whether CPP is right for them. Beyond educating key customer audiences, Joule Assets will also offer counsel on the benefits their clients' products and services can offer to enhance load management program participation.

"Information is the key to driving revenue growth in an increasingly complex energy reduction marketplace," said Mike Gordon, CEO, Joule Assets. "For the first time, all stakeholders will have access to comprehensive information on revenue channels that are often overlooked. The ERA Market Tool is helping to redefine how market players – building owners to utilities, product and service providers to consumers – can use this accessed value as a strategic asset. For some, like US Energy Group, this can mean deeper touch with new or larger customers. For others, it means expanded opportunity with existing customers. Either way, it is access to information that is driving these strategies. "

Luxoft, a member of IBS Group and a leading global provider of advanced application and software product services, is supporting Joule Assets' development efforts.

"Joule Assets' unique approach to addressing the needs of the energy reduction market is the first of its kind," said Joe Jerz, Luxoft's Global Head of Energy & Utilities Practice. "As the company's development support partner, we are delivering the resources that will further Joule Assets' vision and goal of providing energy market participants with a simple-to-use technology that will ease the transaction process for demand response equipment and services. We're excited to collaborate with Joule Assets as they evolve and grow the energy reduction marketplace."
