Sanofi  and the life sciences team at Google announced their collaboration to improve care and outcomes for people with type 1 and type 2 diabetes. The collaboration will pair Sanofis leadership in diabetes treatments and devices with Googles expertise in analytics, miniaturized electronics and low power chip design. The companies will explore how to improve diabetes care by developing new tools that bring together many of the previously siloed pieces of diabetes management and enable new kinds of interventions. This includes health indicators such as blood glucose and hemoglobin A1c levels, patient-reported information, medication regimens and sensor devices.   Sanofi and the life sciences team at Google will combine their respective expertise in science and technology to work on better ways to collect, analyze and understand multiple sources of information impacting diabetes. The hope is that it will be easier for patients to successfully manage their diabetes, which would reduce the risk of complications, improve outcomes and ultimately lower costs.

NEM allows self-consumption of electricity generated by solar photovoltaic system users, while selling the excess energy to TNB.
