The G-HiTech SIMBA Energy Box

According to the International Energy Agency (Energy Access Outlook ,2016), about 1.1 billion people worldwide, lack access to electricity and about 95% of these people are in Sub-Saharan Africa and Asia. The Simba Energy Box is a solar energy based intelligent system that consists of a solar panel, DC/AC inverter, battery and controllers. The main idea is to allow the Simba Energy Box units to be able to communicate and to do electrical energy transactions (sharing) over a blockchain architecture.

About The G-HiTech SIMBA Energy Box

A SEB unit consists of :


  • A photovoltaic solar panel
  • Battery (power storage)
  • DC to AC inverter
  • Sensors (voltmeters and ammeters
  • Raspberry Pi (single board computer) /arduino (microcontroller) with a WiFi module or chip
  • Regulators

The components above come in one package with cables to connect to the solar panel. The battery is smart to detect levels of the electrolyte because it is connected to the regulator. Sensors help in detecting parameters such as angle of the sun, temperature and battery capacity. Regulators then give necessary notications or automatically configure the system accordingly. A SEB is WiFi enabled so that it can communicate with other SEB nodes in the network.
