Applications call for Lagos Smart Meter Hackathon 2020
Despite significant investment and resolutions around power generation and distribution, over 60% of users in Lagos are estimated to still be unmetered and this affects the last-mile distribution to customers. The inability to resolve this not only prevents supply of constant and stable electricity but causes significant revenue leakage and adversely affects the trust the people have in the system.
Eko Innovation Centre (with the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources as Title Sponsors) is promoting efforts to provide affordable meter to the populace by facilitating a meter design hackathon to improve energy distribution, monitoring, and preventing revenue leakage.
Moreover, the winning prize is to celebrate the most viable idea/concept developed by individuals/teams, which can be commercialized. It is not the funding expected to be used for mass production.
The Lagos Smart Meter Hackathon welcomes applications From Teams That Can Deliver Finished Metering Hardware And Software Systems. Moreover, this hackathon is open to the following candidates
