Moixa has teamed up with Honda for the launch of e:PROGRESS, an intelligent home electric vehicle (EV) charging offer using Moixa’s GridShare technology.
On offer for UK Honda e customers, e:PROGRESS – which was announced last year – optimises vehicle charging schedules to save drivers money and enable more renewable energy on the grid by integrating with the Agile Octopus 100% renewable tariff from Octopus Energy.
GridShare autonomously selects the most cost-effective times to charge a vehicle based on dynamic price changes of the tariff, while also ensuring the car is adequately charged when needed by allowing drivers to input when their vehicle is available to charge and when they need it ready by.
Simon Daniel, CEO of Moixa, that software like GridShare is “essential” to ensuring that EV uptake brings financial benefits to drivers, and supports balancing the increase in demand of energy from the grid.
GridShare was developed to optimise both EVs and home batteries, with the software already connecting more than 250MWh of batteries across 25,000 homes in Japan.
The launch of e:PROGRESS comes as part of a pre-established relationship between Moixa and Honda, with Honda having led a £8.6 million funding round in Moixa in 2019.
Following this, the duo have launched a vehicle-to-grid project that saw five chargers installed in the back carpark of Islington Town Hall.
