In India, people often face poor power supply in the form of frequent interruptions, blackouts and low voltage levels. Urban areas receive, on average, only 10 to 18 hours of energy per day, and rural areas only four to 14 hours.
With a Global Impact Award, Prayas Energy Group will improve power distribution quality in India by deploying a network of real-time sensors to monitor power supply provided by utility companies. Consumers, civil societies, researchers and regulatory commissions will have open access to this information and will use it to increase accountability of electric utilities. Over three years, Prayas Energy Group will collect data from 2,500 sites across India and make this data accessible online. Prayas Energy Group will use it to hold utility providers responsible for improved services.
