Enova, a provider of facility and energy management services, has entered an agreement with French big data start-up, Metron. 

It is expected that the collaboration will boost the energy savings – worth $6.5m (AED24m) – already guaranteed by Enova through existing contracts. 

Metron's smart energy platform provides tools to monitor, analyse, and optimise energy consumption on a real-time basis by using data science algorithms.

The partnership is expected to help Enova further energy efficiency with its Middle East customers and reduce utilities costs. 

An initial round of customer meetings showed "strong interest from the market for energy intelligence", Enova said in a statement. 

Energy data will be collected from industrial sites through Metron's platform and analysed by Enova's energy efficiency team. 

Remarking on the agreement, Anne Le Guennec, CEO of Enova, said: "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."
