ENMA Big Data Platform
The ENMA platform was developed by CIMNE and it is a Big Data software which allows to storage, manage and analyze high amounts of information using the Map-Reduce paradigm.
The origin of ENMA
ENMA was initially developed within the EMPOWERING project, which aimed at help consumers to save energy thanks to the information on their meter or bill. It was a co-founded project by the Intelligent Energy Europe Programme of the European Union.
Main objectives of the project
The overall aim of the project is to empower and aware consumers by involving, informing and helping them to take measures to save energy on the basis of their consumption meters or energy bills. This aim can be translated in to three general objectives:
- Achieving measurable energy savings (absolute savings and also peak demand reduction).
- Increasing awareness and motivation of consumers with respect to energy efficiency.
- Increasing trust between consumers and energy suppliers as a pre‐requisite for increasing energy performance for mutual benefit.
