The VoltStorage success story began in 2016 as a Munich-based startup with the vision of making clean and affordable energy accessible around the clock. Since then, we have been working continuously to give our customers the opportunity to take their energy supply into their own hands and drive the energy transition forward.Our storage solutions are as environmentally friendly as the energy they store. We focus on a sustainable alternative in contrast to conventional storage technologies and develop and produce stationary storage systems based on redox flow technology. The result is revolutionary: green, durable and safe batteries for a wide range of applications.
Today, with our storage systems, we are the technological innovation leader for stationary batteries based on redox flow technology.
Day & Night
Jakob Bitner, Michael Peither and Felix Kiefel founded VoltStorage GmbH in 2016. A company that has been characterised by innovative strength, environmental awareness and courage from the very beginning. Many companies have a history, some of them have even made history. Today, VoltStorage is the technological innovation leader in the field of energy storage based on environmentally friendly redox flow technology.
Join us on a short tour through the history of VoltStorage.
In 2016, VoltStorage GmbH was founded by the three founders Jakob Bitner, Michael Peither and Felix Kiefl with the vision of making renewable energy available around the clock.
VoltStorage strategically realigns itself in 2021 and focuses on the development of larger dimensioned storage systems.
The development and production of the commercial storage solution is completed – sales launch of the commercial storage in Germany and Austria in June 2023.
Das Unternehmen bezieht im Herbst 2023 5.000 Quadratmeter Mietfläche für den Ausbau von Forschung und Entwicklung und den Aufbau der eigenen Batterieproduktion.

Here you will find all news, press releases and additional information about technology, products and the company.
Innovative. Responsible. Bold.
The VoltStorage company and brand is defined and supported by three values that help us achieve our goals. They are the essence of our brand identity and what makes us unique. It is innovation that brings progress. It is a responsible approach to the environment and our resources. It is the courage and passion to break new ground and revolutionise the status quo. With the development and production of environmentally friendly and pioneering batteries for renewable energies, we are turning our vision into reality.
The future is being invented today. That is why innovation is deeply anchored in our DNA. We want to develop innovative and practicable storage solutions that make renewable energies usable around the clock and thus make a decisive contribution to the energy transition. With our research and development work, we not only set new technological standards, but also want to redefine the future of energy storage.
New things are not created by remaining in the status quo. New things are created by trying out new things. It is therefore not only openness to new things that we stand for, but also the courage to try out new approaches, to sound out the possibilities and limits, and to go beyond them. This is how products and solutions are created that define the status quo of tomorrow.
We expect ourselves to use our resources responsibly and to live an environmentally friendly corporate culture. In this way, we want to make our contribution to making the world a little better.
Eco-friendly batteries for the energy transition
Making 100% renewable energy available around the clock - that is the vision that drives us. In order to realise this vision, we are developing pioneering battery solutions that are particularly resource-efficient, cost-effective and climate-friendly. Energy transition starts now.
A range of possibilities
Whether optimising self-consumption, ensuring a stable energy supply, reducing the carbon footprint or providing the base load based on renewable energies - VoltStorage's product portfolio of environmentally friendly, safe and durable energy storage systems is the optimal choice for a wide range of applications.
We offer commercial and industrial batteries for agriculture, manufacturing, logistics, hotel & catering as well as large-scale storage for energy companies.
Industry & commercial
To cover electricity needs at night or to run production in the morning - with VoltStorage's battery you can use self-generated energy in an environmentally friendly and safe way around the clock, increasing your profitability.
Optimise your self-consumption and increase your degree of self-sufficiency with the environmentally friendly, safe and durable energy storage from VoltStorage. If more electricity is generated during the day than is consumed, the energy is available in the early morning hours, for example.
Designed for use as a long duration energy storage system, the Iron Salt Battery from VoltStorage enables you to bridge supply gaps during periods of low wind and low sun and thus provide the base load using renewable energies.
