Marking a milestone, managing over 10,000 batteries in Japan
At Moixa, our mission is to manage the world’s batteries. Using our software to save customers money and enable a future powered by renewable energy. This week we are excited to announce a significant milestone in that journey. Our GridShare software is now optimising 100MWh of clean energy across 10,000 batteries in Japan – believed to be one of the largest single fleets of smart batteries in the world.
What’s more, we have achieved this milestone in record time. October marked just one year since our launch at the British Embassy in Tokyo. During that time our partner, the Fortune 500 company ITOCHU, has seen its share of the domestic battery market increase to almost 20%.
Recognising this milestone, Simon Daniel, CEO of Moixa, said: “We want to accelerate the global transition to a zero-carbon energy system. Smart charging of batteries in homes and electric vehicles provides the critical tool to help achieve decarbonisation by storing and shifting solar and wind-resources. At the same time, it helps save money for consumers and reduce infrastructure cost.”
Koji Hasegawa, General Manager of Industrial Chemicals Department of ITOCHU added: “Our customers are getting extra value from their batteries with Moixa’s GridShare software. It’s enabling them to maximise their solar resources and prepare for weather risk.”
AI: saving money and cutting carbon
Our GridShare software embeds artificial intelligence into home batteries and electric vehicle chargers. By learning energy consumption patterns and developing tailored charging plans for each battery, we can save customers money and help them lower their carbon emissions.
By enabling fleets of assets to react to various signals, our software also provides valuable flexibility services to local energy networks, enabling improved economics to partners and customers, and a cleaner, smarter energy system.
We’ve gathered and analysed over 50 terabytes of data to date, enabling more accurate predictions and improving battery optimisation.
U.K.-based energy storage developer Moixa plans to raise capital soon as it gears up for overseas expansion.
UK smart technology firm Moixa is managing smart batteries in more than 10,000 homes across Japan, the firm announced today, building on the success of last year’s rollout of its GridShare artificial intelligence platform in the country.
