Swiss Contribution

Power-Blox produces and distributes intelligent swarm electrification solutions for off-grid and on-grid requirements. It has developed a technology enabling automated and decentralized power regulation and storage within the grid. The system is self-learning and self-configuring; it regulates power production, storage and distribution in the grid intelligently and autonomously.

Description

Power-Blox has already electrified 30 houses in Mali in collaboration with its local partner FlexGrid and has gained initial experience.  As part of the REPIC project, the identified necessary improvements in the electrification of four villages in Mali, as well as a village in Burkino Faso, with a total of over 8,000 beneficiaries will now be implemented. In addition to technical improvements, the cost of electricity should be especially reduced and the developed financing and business model for the desired project multiplication within the local context should be validated.
