VoltStorage: Ecological Energy storage systems for 100% renewable energy

VoltStorage develops solar storage systems based on the eco-friendly Redox Flow Technology. Our vision is to make 100% renewable energies available 24/7 through the development of environmentally friendly and cost-effective energy storage systems – in order to make the world cleaner and fairer for future generations.

A great idea is born

Only through the expansion of renewable energies can we succeed in successfully combating climate change. Energy storage systems are a key technology to enable 100% renewable energy around the clock.

But what is the best technology to store climate-friendly energy in an eco-friendly way? Our CTO & co-founder Michael Peither worked intensively on various storage technologies. His findings: The Vanadium Redox Flow (VRF) technology is the most suitable storage technology as it does not require any rare raw or conflict materials and is fully recyclable.

VoltStorage Vision

2016

The innovative breakthrough

So far, VRF technology has only been used in bulk-scale storage systems – and has been very successful for many years. Until now, one problem prevented the establishment of this storage technology in the mass market: there was no serial production process for VRF batteries, so that large quantities could only be produced manually. As a result, the total system costs were not competitive.

Since 2016, a patent-pending production process developed by VoltStorage made it possible for the first time to manufacture VRF batteries for the mass market automatically and cost-effectively.

Development and testing phase

Thanks to a seven-digit investment, the VoltStorage team was enlarged with international redox flow, IT, electronics and engineering experts. The major goal was to develop the world’s first cost-effective home storage system based on the ecological Vanadium Redox Flow technology.

Nearly all important key components (e.g. battery stack, electronics, battery management, mechanical components, monitoring system) could only be realized through in-house development.

Market launch of the VoltStorage SMART

With VoltStorage SMART, homeowners can rely on the world’s first cost-effective home storage system based on the ecological VRF technology. The storage solution is a compact and maintenance-free “all-in-one” system that is compatible with any photovoltaic system and contains all the components required for operation. The VoltStorage SMART home storage system is available in Germany, Austria and Switzerland from selected VoltStorage partners.

“With VoltStorage we are reacting to the turned solar industry: Due to lower feed-in tariffs, feeding back to the grid for refinancing the PV system is no longer attractive to homeowners. The alternative: use your self-generated electricity yourself – with safe and economical storage solutions.”
