Moxa Receives Open Standards Award from the SunSpec Alliance, Jointly Hosting SunSpec Webinar Series



BREA, CA, APRIL 17, 2014 -- Moxa, an industry leader in data-loggers and networking hardware forthe renewable energy market, announced today that it was recognized with the Open Standards Champion award from the SunSpec Alliance, a trade consortium of distributed energy industry participants working together to pursue information standards to enable "plug & play" system interoperability. It was the second year in a row that Moxa received the coveted award.

In a statement released to the press, Chairman of the SunSpec Alliance Tom Tansy said, "Moxa's steadfast support and technical contribution have been invaluable to our efforts in the SunSpec Alliance. We are grateful for their efforts on behalf of all Alliance members and are proud to present them with this award for the second year in a row."

 

"Moxa deeply believes in the SunSpec Alliance mission of common open standards for the industry, and already adopts this philosophy in our approach to hardware design," according to Eddie Lee, Director of Global Industry Marketing for Moxa. "It is an honor to be recognized by the SunSpec Alliance for being a significant contributor to this mission."  

Moxa became a sponsor member of
the SunSpec Alliance in 2010. The company's data loggers and Ethernet switches have increasingly been adopted in renewable energy applications across the US, Europe, China, Australia and Taiwan. In 2012, Moxa installed a 311 kW DC solar photo-voltaic array at its Global Sales and Marketing Headquarters in Brea, California, making it the largest privately owned solar plant in the city. For this and for opening portions of the live solar array to SunSpec Alliance members for use in standards testing and verification, Moxa received special recognition from the Alliance as well as from the local and state government. 

2014 Solar Securitization & Grid Control Symposium 
Moxa is currently working with SunSpec on the 2014 Solar Securitization & Grid Control Symposium, originally scheduled for April 22, 2014. The Symposium has been re-positioned as a webinar series to encourage greater interaction between speakers and the audience, as well as provide a flexible schedule for more visitors to watch solar industry leaders give presentations. Hosted by SunSpec and Moxa, the series will explore two exciting and innovative topics: securitising distributed energy, and grid control for distributed energy and how it impacts the value equation. Additional details will be released as they become available.
