Experience of managing 10,000 home batteries in Japan paves the way for mass EV smart charging and further international expansion.
Andy Colthorpe caught up with Moixa CTO Chris Wright to hear about how a tie-in with trading company ITOCHU and the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) is creating smarter energy networks in Japan using solar, batteries, electric cars – and Moixa’s GridShare software platform.
Japanese trading house Itochu has invested £5 million (US$7.04 million) into UK-based energy storage and related services provider Moixa, which will enable Itochu to add Moixa’s ‘GridShare’ aggregation platform to its own suite of battery storage solutions.
Home battery storage company Moixa is to expand its GridShare aggregation platform to include third party units for the first time after securing over a quarter of a million pounds from the UK government.
Moixa is aiming to increase the amount of aggregated energy storage capacity through its GridShare platform to take on future national tenders, with the help of a new partnership with PV Kits Direct and a combined solar storage offer.
