Adding Intelligence to Global Energy Storage - GridShare

GridShare is a customizable cloud-based software platform that connects storage devices to the grid, to enable smart energy management. It applies AI and machine learning to optimize power distribution through the grid and help customers maximize the value of energy. GridShare software technology is the heart of Moixa.

Predictions and Smart Charging

GridShare identifies a home’s energy generation, consumption patterns, weather forecasts, and available flexible tariffs. Based on all the data points, GridShare generates a personalized charging and energy plan for each customer.

Storage Asset Management

Analytical tools help group asset owners understand the behavior of their fleet and its interaction with the grid. It also provides a platform for grouping storage systems and offers a live view of device data to support a variety of grid services.

Flexibility Services

GridShare acts like a virtual power plant (VPP), helping the grid maintain a stable frequency to avoid blackouts and relieve stress by absorbing excess generation from renewable energy. The technology enables businesses to respond to local constraints, including substation feeding areas and EV charger infrastructure, eliminating the need for costly upgrades.

Real-time Reporting and Analytics

Users' batteries that are managed by GridShare benefit from personalized dashboards, showing real-time performance data to drive more efficient energy usage.
