There are over 1.5 billion people in the world with no access to electric power.
Energy drives our world. It powers businesses around the planet, from small households to big data centers. But there is something else that drives our world. Visions. Visions of a world with enough food, a world without poverty, a world full of wisdom, visions of everyone fulfilling their personal dreams.
Power-Blox is an award-winning Swiss company who produces swarm intelligence solutions for the energy industry. Founded in July 2015, it developed a technology which, supported by an algorithm, allows to easily combine different energy sources and battery systems, without the need for configuration and centralized control, enabling an automated and decentralized power regulation and storage within the grid (“the internet of energy”). The system is self-learning, autonomous and self-regulating. The nearly endless scalability of the system represents a breakthrough in energy technology.
This distributed energy system is made of 1.2 kilowatt-hour battery cubes that store solar or wind energy. They snap together LEGO-like to save and provide more power. Software that uses a swarm intelligence-based algorithm balances energy fluctuations between connected units, even if one of them malfunctions or is unplugged. One unit can serve the needs of a few people, while several units can work together to create a modular microgrid, powering an entire village.
