The Energy Monitoring and Management System (EMMS) is developing an electrical power meter to help make electricity more available in energy impoverished regions of the world. The meter fills a unique niche for energy tracking and regulation within micro-grid systems. The EMMS project has partners in Burkina Faso and Zimbabwe: Open Door Development (ODD), the Institut Missiologique du Sahel (IMS), and the Theological College of Zimbabwe (TCZ). Ties are also maintained on a regular basis with IEEE Smart Village for potential future widespread system implementation.

Recent work on the EMMS meter has been focused on resolving the last few remaining bugs, establishing a robust communication system, and developing a centralized server-based interface which aids with meter configuration and administration. The team has also begun several future developments which include datalogging and remote access features.
