Swiss Contribution

Power-Blox has developed intelligent “swarm technologies” for off-grid, as well as grid-connected electrification that allow for automatic and decentralised power regulation along with energy storage with the power grid.  The self-learning system configures itself autonomously and the intelligent regulation of power production, energy storage and distribution into the grid is automatically insured.

Description

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, composed of a PV plant and battery system.  Here, the varied air-conditioning of the different areas will be particularly challenging, since the tolerances for the required temperatures are not very large.  If the pilot system is successful, other interested parties have already lined up to multiply this idea accordingly.
