Power-Blox, a Swiss producer of intelligent swarm electrification solutions, announced its Power-Blox 200 Series now introduces nearly unlimited off-grid energy scalability, without installation.
The unique ‘Plug and Power’ system allows anyone to add energy storage modules to a power grid without any additional installation or configuration. The system can be expanded from powering a single appliance to an entire town.
Currently, off-grid power solutions require a level of custom installation and integration that force the customer to predict their energy usage for the next 5-10 years. Increasing the amount of energy means costly, professional installation and configuration to ensure that all of the power sources are operating in-phase, inverters are configured, and a host of other technical factors that the everyday person has no idea how to handle.
What’s more, custom installations and configurations can create setups that are so complicated that any failure or misconfiguration of even the smallest element causes the entire system to break.
The new Power-Blox 200 Series is the first completely modular and scalable off-grid energy solution that requires no professional installation, maintenance, or configuration.
Each Power-Blox 200 cube provides 200 Watts of alternating current and can provide enough power for lighting, one refrigerator, a television and mobile phone / laptop charging. The cubes can be powered by any external source, including an optionally included solar panel, a wind turbine, biomass, or a diesel generator, thanks to incorporated and pre-configured inverters.
Power-Blox has developed their product to revolutionize off-grid energy storage by providing a robust, dynamic, and fully scalable off-grid energy solution that can adapt to almost any scenario without the need for professional installation, maintenance, or configuration.
When two or more Power-Blox are combined, a proprietary technology called Swarm Power causes the individual modules to use machine learning technology to optimize performance and balance power distribution across the entire system.
Within a Swarm Power system, the power generation, storage and distribution are done with a fully decentralized architecture to manage fluctuating current, as opposed to a smart grid which needs a centralized architecture.
The energy in the swarm is stored in nodes and every component of the grid learns how to adapt to the current state of the grid by observing the grid parameters and adapting its behavior with the use of artificial intelligence.
