Abstract:
    The aim of our project is to ensure concurrent operation and integration of renewable energy sources for microgrid.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    Traditional grid infrastructure suffers from power losses. One way to deal with this problem is to use Distributed Generation. Renewable energy sources have low energy density and are not able to sustain the full load demand of a locality. Consequently, we have to compromise on operations.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   Sustainable communities, renewable energy investors, green technology promoters, energy trading markets and residential households.
How will the solution works
    Building a microgrid by integration of multiple static renewable sources through synchronization in order to achieve parallel power sharing. The solution is based on sharing economy model. Interconnection of multiple renewable energy sources helps in smoothing out the supply variability. It balances electricity demand and supply curve of a locality.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    Brooklyn Microgrid, Power Ledger, Sonnen, Decentralised Energy Exchange (deX) etc. P2P energy trading is a new emerging market, so there are not a lot of projects in this area. We are taking initiative to start this kind of project in Pakistan.
