GTC2018 Winner Abstract: Digital Transformation of LPG distribution: A case study on the use of IoT to accelerate market adoption and combat illegal practices

PayGo Energy has developed a platform that connects end consumers of LPG to retailers and retailers to wholesalers. PayGo’s patented smart meter and software products enable both the acceleration of LPG adoption via pay-as-you-go functionality, and the reduction of LPG cylinder loss and cross-filling by turning cylinders into connected devices that are easily tracked, monitored, and controlled.

This abstract highlights the key results from PayGo Energy’s initial deployment of the system in Nairobi, Kenya, and the wider potential this technology has for the LPG industry.
