Information about the project
HydroIQ - The world's first Virtual water Network Operator
We have developed HydroIQ, a smart metering device that is plugged into the existing water supply network, turning the traditional water system into a smart water grid. HydroIQ is installed at the households to monitor consumption in real-time, and allow consumers to pay for only the water they consume on a pay as you go basis using mobile money. This allows consumers to regulate and manage their water use, and receive alerts when water is running low. This means consumers will pay for what they consume and not the water that is lost. Not only is this efficient, more importantly it’s fair. HydroIQ allows water utilities to detect leaks in Real-time. This prevents the needless loss of water, and saves time and money to companies. With continuous data collection Utility companies become more efficient, cutting revenue losses by up to 90%.
National implementation: Kenya
Planned for future from 02/04/2018 to 02/04/2019
