The Swiss startup, Power-Blox, has developed a new technology called' Swarm Power', which is based on swarm intelligence and imitates complex systems in nature to create completely autonomous intelligent power grids all over the world.
The system is considered an important breakthrough in power engineering because it is completely autonomous, scalable, decentralised and does not require any technical background, configuration or maintenance. Anyone can create a Swarm Grid to power a school, hospital or entire city by simply adding additional power blox to the system.
Power-Blox was awarded the Axpo Energy Award 2014 and the UN National Energy Globe Award of Tanzania 2015 and is among the top 10 finalists for the InterSolar 2017 Award in Munich. The company is located in Brugg, Switzerland, and has recently completed its second round of investment.
