Abstract:
    Our project is design and fabrication of a hydrokinetic turbine along with experimental quantification of different parameters.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    Pakistan has a lot of potential for hydro energy and this project can prove to be a breakthrough for further development in field of hydrokinetic turbines.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   All the developing countries today are in need of cheap energy and this project if executed properly can prove to be breakthrough in terms of cheap energy with minimal impact on environment.
How will the solution works
    The canal system of Pakistan is regarded as one of the best among others worldwide consisting of 12 linked and 45 normal canals therefore it is a great source for renewable energy in our country. Low head hydro power applications use rivers or canals to produce energy. These applications may not need to dam or retain water to create hydraulic head. Using the drop in a river flow to create electricity may provide a renewable energy source that will have a minimal impact on the environment.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    Any energy producing firm is our competitor but our solution is much cheaper and environment friendly.
