Constant monitoring and detailed analysis of energy data are key success factors for energy efficiency contracts. However, huge amounts of energy data are currently left untapped.
To bridge this gap with an innovative approach, Enova recently partnered with the French start-up METRON, an expert in big data science.
Together, the companies will tackle the challenges in the energy efficiency market in the Middle East and help industrial customers use smart energy management solutions to reduce their utilities costs.
The joint offer combines Enova’s local and regional experience and on-site teams with METRON’s specialised technologies and expertise in the industrial sector.
44% of industrial leaders declare they lack in-house expertise to turn energy data into actionable insights, according to METRON.
It hopes to leverage its platform to collect these high data volumes from industrial sites in real-time and will be analysed by Enova energy efficiency experts to ultimately transform them into tangible energy savings, adding to the Dh24mn of energy savings already guaranteed by Enova through existing contracts.
“This partnership shows the significance of big data in a climate of increasing resource scarcity. Thanks to unique tools and solutions, such as those provided by METRON, we are able to enrich our existing services and support especially the industrial sector in making the most of their energy resources,” said Anne Le Guennec, CEO, Enova.
METRON’s smart energy platform spans across all industries. In particular, METRON’s current references include leading companies from chemicals, plastics, automotive, food, paper and glass industries.
“We are glad to have formed a partnership with Enova, whose offer perfectly complements the services provided by METRON. Together, we will be able to re-shape the way energy resources are being exploited,” said Vincent Sciandra, CEO METRON.
The first round of customer meetings showed a strong interest from the market for Energy Intelligence solutions that result in energy savings while decreasing the environmental footprint, according to Enova.
