Moixa is ‘Highly Commended’ at the BusinessGreen Technology Awards 2016

 

Moixa’s smart battery technology has been highly commended for ‘Solar Innovation of the Year’, for boosting ‘the performance, cost-effectiveness, and appeal of solar energy products’ at the BusinessGreen Technology Awards.

Moixa has this year launched a solar plus storage package, bundling a 2KWh Moixa Smart Battery with a 2KW, eight-panel solar photovoltaic system. Using storage in this way enables customers to save money by accessing smart tariffs and supporting the development of a reliable, cost-effective, low-carbon electricity system.

Moixa has deployed its technology in conjunction with solar panels in a bid to reduce fuel poverty in Oxford.  Project ERIC (Energy Resources for Integrated Communities), is an initiative in Rose Hill, East Oxford, a social housing estate in the lowest 10% most deprived communities in the UK.

Moixa installed 2kWh smart batteries in 82 homes, a primary school and an 8kWh battery stack in a local community centre. The batteries are linked to 200kWp of solar photovoltaic (PV) panels on homes and a further 100kWp of solar on the school and community centre, creating a virtual smart local energy grid.

Simon Daniel, CEO of Moixa, said: “We are pleased that the judges have recognised Moixa for its innovative technology providing storage and demand flexibility.  It will help protect customers from rising electricity prices and allow them to benefit from the smart power revolution, accessing smart tariffs and making money by supporting the development of a reliable, cost-effective, low-carbon electricity system. We hope it will provide a boost to the solar installation market, which has been hit by cuts to feed-in-tariffs.”

Moixa has installed Moixa Smart batteries in more than 600 homes nationwide with a combined capacity of over 1.3MWh and over five million hours of use.
