Moixa Technology to present at Smart Future London

Moixa Technology will present on 27 October at Smart Future London 2014, in City Hall, London:

altMoixa Technology is the leading UK developer of residential energy storage solutions, and is currently deploying MASLOW energy storage systems across 300 homes and offices under a pilot for DECC. Moixa aims to organise the world’s electricity demand and make accessible storage and embedded batteries for balancing purposes, helping to reduce peak energy demand. This reduces energy cost and provides resilience for the growing DC (Direct Current) demand of always-on IoT and other consumer critical devices.

Moixa has patented technology and has been developing smart storage and smart DC solutions and enabling technologies since 2008 with the support of over £2.5 million of public funding contracts and R&D grants from DECC, InnovateUK (Technology Strategy Board). MASLOW is designed as a compact, rapid to install energy storage solution from 2-5KWh, for powering peak energy demands in homes and small offices, and to support aggregation and storage as a service for grid income, as well as providing local resilience on connected DC LED lighting and electronics.


Novagg Limited to present at Smart Future London

Novagg Limited will present on 27 October at Smart Future London 2014, in City Hall, London:

altNovagg Limited, together with Imperial College London and a leading industrial partner, has developed a new and highly sustainable or ‘green’ lightweight structural aggregate, made from 98% recycled waste. The product's attributes include:

- A massive reduction in firing temperature (400°C lower) and time lowering carbon footprint and environmental impact.
- Waste is transformed into a new and sustainable material.
- It produces engineered pellets with market-leading specification in terms of density and strength.
- The pellets are vitreous/closed pore with extremely low water absorption (<7%).
- Excellent thermal and noise insulation potential.
- Recyclable.

The Novagg product is the successful result of a 3-year research and development project part-funded by the UK Government’s Technology Strategy Board. Collaborative work is currently being carried out on testing materials for several multi-national companies and Novagg is working with a major international industrial group as an informal partner on process technology.

The management's objective is for novagg® to become an international ‘green’ construction material of choice. The company is now seeking global partners from across the supply chain in order to share the benefits of this exciting new product.


Proton Power Systems to present at Smart Future London

Proton Power Systems will present on 27 October at Smart Future London 2014, in City Hall, London:

altProton Power Systems, through its German subsidiary Proton Motor Fuel Cell GmbH, has developed and produced a standard hydrogen fuel cell module, integrated with an energy storage system to create an electric fuel cell hybrid system capable of providing power during peak demand situations. Proton Motor focuses on industrial applications where ‘back-to-base’ refuelling occurs on site at the end of each shift or work period.

Proton has identified opportunities to replace lead-acid batteries with its PEM fuel cell systems, and has found niche markets in the material handling and mass-transportation sectors, where electric fuel cell hybrid systems offer considerable advantages over conventional engine technology and fuel cell only drive systems.

The many advantages of Proton Motor's standard fuel cell model over current commercial alternatives include lower fuel consumption, longer periods between refuelling, shorter refuelling time, consistent levels of power delivery and zero harmful emissions.

Proton Motor’s technology development has been undertaken with the key objectives of multiple applications and volume production.

Proton Power Systems was admitted to trading on AIM on October 31, 2006 with a market capitalisation of £25 million.

Prior to its acquisition by Proton Power Systems, Proton Motor had secured external funding from Volvo Technology Transfer AB and other German institutional and private investors. These funds facilitated the undertaking of several pilot projects and, to date, over 100 fuel cell modules have been built.


Recycling Technologies to present at Smart Future London

Recycling Technologies will present on 27 October at Smart Future London 2014, in City Hall, London:

Recycling Technologies provides innovative solutions to help customers achieve financial gains through turning Mixed Plastic Waste into a valuable resource.

Using its advanced Fluidised Bed Reactor – the WarwickFBR™ – Mixed Plastic Waste can be transformed on site to produce PlaxOil™ for resale into the hydrocarbons market.

Depending on site and feedstock commitments, Recycling Technologies can offer a full conversion service or just provide and install its equipment.

Using Mixed Plastic Waste feedstock, the WarwickFBR produces PlaxOil™, a waxy fuel that can be used as energy or refined as feedstock for producing plastic.


OpenTRV to present at Smart Future London

OpenTRV will present on 27 October at Smart Future London 2014, in City Hall, London:

altOpenTRV ( designs intelligent radiator controllers that significantly lower heating bills, cut carbon emissions and improve comfort levels in homes and small commercial buildings. The concept of zoning to reduce energy requirements is well established in large commercial buildings with energy management systems. OpenTRV brings this to smaller buildings at low cost and adds in novel features such as occupancy sensing and learning algorithms. The business model is founded on the commoditisation of the hardware, and the OpenTRV reference design is available for download and modification with its open hardware and software licensing.

With an open, low cost and low power sensor platform used as the basis for the OpenTRV hardware, the platform is now being adapted for applications in the Internet of Things (IoT) space. OpenTRV, which is supported by Climate-KIC through its accelerator programme, ensures that no radiator is left behind in the world of IoT.


EnergyDeck to present at Smart Future London

EnergyDeck will present on 27 October at Smart Future London 2014, in City Hall, London:

altEnergyDeck ( addresses environmental sustainability in organisations. Tracking, analysis and reporting of energy and resource consumption is still mostly based on spreadsheets, leading to operational inefficiencies and missed opportunities. Further, there are no publicly accessible databases of savings measures with detailed performance data for different types of buildings and use cases; and analysing large amounts of data (especially including smart meter readings) is a tedious and complex task even for experts - and powerful tracking and analytics tools often come with high price tags.

EnergyDeck's goal is to help scale energy and resource efficiency to a mass market by giving users access to a powerful platform that enables users to identify inefficiencies and savings potential.

EnergyDeck is based on the latest open-source Web 2.0 technologies. A free version allows anyone to sign up and start using the platform immediately. The collective intelligence of EnergyDeck users provides relevant benchmarks and savings projects.


Q-Bot to present at Smart Future London

Q-Bot will present on 27 October at Smart Future London 2014, at City Hall, London:

altQ-Bot ( designs and develops intelligent tools for use in the built environment, thus allowing easier, cheaper, safer and more effective execution of jobs that are normally labour-intensive and difficult for human workers to undertake. Contractors and installers can 'rent a robot', improving their productivity and allowing them to offer new services to their clients. The initial target market is the application of under-floor insulation, an environment which is currently inaccessible for human operatives without prohibitive disruption and cost.
