Chris Wright



Maverick tech thinker Chris Wright founded Moixa with Simon Daniel in 2006 leading technology development as CTO, with the aim of rethinking conventional business practices around energy supply, interface and storage. That year, they launched the USBCell, an ingenious game-changing USB-rechargeable AA battery to power portable devices on the go. For the past 7 years, Chris, Simon and their dedicated UK team have applied themselves to solving the conundrums of renewable-energy storage and managing grid supply and demand, with their UK market-leading Moixa Smart Battery.

Moixa, which is based in London’s cutting-edge Clerkenwell design district, now holds a roster of patents in the arena of computer interface technology, batteries and renewable energy, and prides itself on its unorthodox approach to the business of power. 

Chris studied architecture at Cambridge University and worked as an architect at practices including Norman Foster and Partners and Michael Hopkins and Partners. He created an portfolio of industrial and furniture design before turning his attention to the pressing 21st-century issue of energy.
