Power-Blox has developed a smart system based on swarm technology for on and off-grid electrification. It allows for a decentralised and auto-regulation of the power within the grid. The self-learning system configures itself automatically and monitors the settings for power production, energy storage and distribution into the grid.
Power-Blox is planning to set up a solar-powered mushroom farm in Tanzania, together with Gian Schachenmann. The planned production complex’s energy supply (see photo on the left, above) is being prepared with the system developed by Power-Blox, made of a PV plant and a battery system. The precise control of the air-conditioning system will be a key challenge since mushrooms have a low tolerance for temperature variation. If the pilot project is successful, the installation will be replicated in other regions.
