Moixa ‘highly commended’ at British Renewable Energy Awards 2017
Moixa’s smart battery technology was highly commended in the energy storage category of the British Renewable Energy Awards 2017.
The Energy Storage Award recognises the best of live energy storage projects whether centralised, distributed or mobile. REA judges were impressed by the following Moixa projects:
Virtual power plant trial with Northern Powergrid
Forty home batteries will be linked in a ground-breaking trial in Barnsley to demonstrate how virtual power plants can increase capacity on the electricity network, enable more homes to install solar panels, and save millions in the costs of running the UK’s power network.
Tackling fuel poverty with Oxford City Council
This award-winning project links smart batteries in 82 homes, a school and community centre with 300kWp of solar panels creating a virtual smart local energy grid. It aims to tackle fuel poverty by saving the community money and allowing it to generate more power from renewables.
Simon Daniel, CEO of Moixa, said: “It’s great that our innovative work in energy storage has been acknowledged by the REA. Our work will continue to help protect customers from rising electricity prices, allowing them to benefit from the smart power revolution, help relieve constraints on the National Grid and facilitate greater adoption of solar and other renewables.”
