UK’s Moixa expands smart battery tech in Japan

Mon, 10/29/2018 - 00:00 -- Hugh Finzel

UK-based residential energy storage firm Moixa has rolled out its GridShare smart battery technology platform to 3,500 homes in Japan.

The move comes just eight months after Moixa agreed to export its battery tech to Japan— under a signed a partnership agreement with the country’s Itochu trading house.

Moixa’s roll-out announcement was made at the British embassy in Tokyo, where the company also launched a GridShare off-peak ‘smart tariff’ for residential battery owners.

UK energy and clean growth minister Claire Perry, who attended the launch, said: “With intelligent management of batteries designed with UK government support, Moixa is exporting its GridShare technology and knowhow so consumers in Japan can save money by using energy outside peak times or in the future make money when using electric vehicles.”

Last year, Moixa was awarded £267,750 (US$350,770) in UK government ‘entrepreneurial funding’ to expand GridShare. CEO Simon Daniel said the funds would “put us well on course towards our 2020 target of aggregating 200 megawatt-hours of battery capacity to support a low-carbon, cost-effective smart grid”
