    We aim to design a secure and intelligent infrastructure that will integrate all of today’s metering needs in a single software-based solution.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    To cater to non-technical losses and to improve efficiency of energy, our system will detect tampering and monitor power quality. Moreover, consumers’ will be provided with detailed power consumption information so they can optimize power savings
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   It will be a fruitful integration for both the Energy supplier and the consumer. Everyone in Pakistan will be benefitted from a smart meter that predicts future energy use along with their data secure from a malicious third party. therefore, lower power loss overall and a secure system.
How will the solution works
    Our AMI system takes the advantage of a microcontroller
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    Our competitors are different energy suppliers and utilities that construct existing smart meters. But, our smart meter aims to provide innovative features that current meters lack as it handles both hardware and software tampering issues, prediction of future energy usage and is cost-effective.
