New grid being built in Accra

nLine works to improve the reach, reliability, and resilience of the world’s most critical infrastructure, including power grids, water systems, and roadway networks. We design and deploy simple systems that gather data and provide it to stakeholders such as regulators, utilities, and public interest groups. We value scientific integrity, transparency, and impact.

nLine's current focus is on improving the reliability of electricity distribution in Sub-Saharan Africa, where power outages are common and repairs are slow. Frequent outages have human consequences, leading to families not realizing the full benefits of refrigeration and lighting, small businesses struggling to operate efficiently, and governments not able to regulate effectively. For this project, we design sensors and cloud services to determine when the grid fails and why it fails, and we report what we learn back to utilities, regulators, and the public.
