Energy Storage Re-Imagined
Imagine the panels of a satellite, the wings of an airplane or the roof of a car capable of storing electricity: this innovation would be an enabling technology for the energy transition.
One component performs two functions: structure and battery
Full recharge in 12 minutes
More than 5’000 cycles at 100% depth of discharge
Designed in any shape, size and layup to meet requirements
Electrochemical reaction and materials with no fire or explosion risk
Lithium-free chemistry based on abundant, non-toxic materials
In the automotive application
Volta’s Structural Battery could extend a vehicle range without affecting the internal living space or system mass and increasing its efficiency thanks to the fast-charging capabilities required by regenerative breaking.
