The energy industry is undergoing a fundamental, transformative change, empowered by new technologies and driven by consumers. Technologies such as distributed solar and batteries are enabling innovative new ways of producing, consuming and sharing energy. This in turn permits consumers to increasingly and proactively engage the energy industry as "prosumers", who both produce and consume energy.
Moixa offers a compact and affordable smart battery for residential customers that helps households to save money by storing spare solar or cheap tariff electricity.
