Abstract:
    With time, need to analyze energy usage data has increased so that the power management could be done .This is where smart meter comes.It monitor and saves the energy along with bidirectional feature.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    With increase in population the use of power has increased.Our idea would lead to lesser consumption of energy and lesser utility bills. In May 2017, electricity demand crossed 20,000 MW f in Pakistan and expected that it would reach 45,000 MW by 2025.Through our meter we can save energy upto 10%.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   The number of the beneficiaries are basically endless as everyone who consumes electricity can benefit from this. It would be beneficial to the government in the formation of energy policy,by providing reliable data. Industries and residential customers would also benefit by reduced utility bills.
How will the solution works
    Our smart meter will be having microcontroller along with sensors to monitor voltage current quality and many other parameters of the power coming in the meter.It will be connected to grid and renewable source and after comparing both,system will chose better one of them to power load.As its bi-directional so from renewable,energy can be fed into the grid .It will measure in both the case and with the help of PLC and pi, will tell both utility and consumer about the usage and other parameters.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    At national level not such but on international level there are few competitors but, our price tag would easily beat the products available in the market. Our price will increase once we add additional feature,still with the product we have its price is low and quality is high as compared to other .
