Big Data analytics is helping to enhance energy efficiency across smart cities and mega-events

The digital transformation of the Middle East’s energy and facilities management (FM) across industry verticals will continue driving the market to record-high business volumes in the medium term, said a top industry expert.

Big Data analytics is helping to enhance energy efficiency across smart cities and mega-events, entertainment, healthcare, hospitality, and transportation, remarked Renaud Capris, the newly-appointed CEO of Enova, a leading FM company in the Middle East region.

Enova is a joint venture between Majid Al Futtaim, a leading shopping malls, communities, retail and leisure pioneer in the region, and Veolia, a global leader in provision of water, waste, and energy management solutions.

With real-time insights, organisations can monitor their utilities usage, optimize based on time or usage, and support predictive maintenance, he added.

Amid ambitious growth plans, Enova had picked up Capris for the big role in the Middle East replacing Anne Le Guennec, who moves to Veolia France as Director General of Recycling and Waste Recovery.

“From mega-events to new rail lines and luxury hospitality projects, the Middle East’s built environment presents strong opportunities for our building energy services offer,” remarked Capris.

“I’m eager to advance Enova’s strategy, ensuring that we foster our customer-centric approach and expand our partner ecosystem, by continuously developing our people, processes, and tools,” he added.

Enova’s new CEO brings more than three decades of industry expertise to the role. Prior to this, Capris has worked across Veolia’s energy business, most recently as CEO of Italian energy service company Siram, where he drove energy efficiency across multiple industries.

In the Middle East, Capris will support adoption of Hubgrade 4.0, Enova’s dedicated energy and performance space for its energy, technical, and performance solutions.

A regional leader in integrated energy and multi-technical services, Enova delivers comprehensive services to its clients. With 2,500 multi-skilled employees, it serves a wide portfolio of clients in the residential, commercial, industrial and healthcare sectors in the region.
