Reeddi Special Prize: Quality Access & SDG-7
The Blixt breaker is a fully solid state DIN format breaker for fitting in fuse boxes. It turns the fuse box into a smartphone, collecting and communicating rich, real time electricity usage data as it passes through the circuit breaker. This data is communicated to the energy service provider so that it can effectively manage the future grid. Crucially, the Blixt breaker also allows real time, remote control of appliances, by both the consumer and the energy service provider, thereby enabling demand side management.
Blixt combines the functions of a breaker, remote control and smart meter, all in one single affordable device.
