Quantum Grid 4.0 approved by the European Patent Office

This week we received pleasant news about the patent proceedings of the Quantum Grid 4.0: the European Patent Office has declared the QG 4.0 to be new and inventive in its search report, which means that nothing stands in the way of a Europe-wide patent. We expect to receive the patent in an express procedure at the beginning of next year and are already looking forward to the further exciting steps that will accompany the granting of the patent.

For more than 13 years, the GIP Research Institute and thus Dr. Reifenhäuser and Dr. Ebbes have been working on the Quantum Grid and its further development. The Quantum Grid transmits electricity by means of small energy packets from one Quantum Grid router to the next, analogous to the Internet. The new Quantum Grid 4.0 is now capable of using algorithmic intelligence to self-organize the integration of generation, demand, loss, and storage forecasts for a packet-based, sector-coupled energy supply system. This enables the Quantum Grid to adapt in a highly flexible manner to the dynamic requirements of a regenerative, volatile and decentralized energy supply of the future.
