Idea Name: Electricity-Theft Detection
Slogan: No theft left unseen
Startup Domain: Energy
Abstract:
    Each unit saved is equivalent to each unit produced. Pakistan is suffering major energy crises due to electricity theft. It will automate theft detection in real time using IOT, smart sensing and ML.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    There is a dire need for upkeep and investigation when it comes to electricity theft, specially in our country. The production to consumption ratio of electricity in Pakistan is woeful because of no check and balance in theft.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   There are currently four stakeholders that would benefit namely, Government, Private housing societies, Private industrial grid operators and NGOs and policy makers.
How will the solution works
    In proposed methodology, we setup a test bed in NUST local environment. Smart nodes will be installed at both consuming and supplying end. These nodes will be collecting essential parameters to analyze the energy consumption. These parameters will be sent and stored to the center database from the nodes. These will be processed via deep learning and machine learning to identify theft in real time. This will then alarm authorities if theft is identified.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    Till now, electricity theft is detected through manual procedures like some complain of physical inquiry. This solution will provide real time automated detection by pointing out the who is stealing electricity.
