Switzerland-Power-Blox uses swarm power to create intelligent autonomous energy grids

Power-Blox uses a technology called Swarm Power, thereby enabling anyone to create a ‘plug and power’ energy grid that is completely autonomous, scalable and decentralised, while requiring no management, configuration or maintenance. The system is regarded as a major breakthrough in energy technology because anyone can create a Swarm Grid to power a school, hospital or an entire town simply by adding additional Power-Blox to the system. Swarm technology is based upon nature’s approach towards organising complex structures in a fully decentralized way. In a swarm, the most complex systems are governed by a simple set of rules and that are acted upon without the need for centralised decision making. As the individual entities within the swarm follow this set of rules they interact with one another without knowledge of the swarm’s behaviour, giving rise to an ‘intelligent’ gl...
