About Volta

Volta was founded by Kamyar Rouindej from years of graduate research at University of Waterloo. Batteries provide maximum output for only a few hours while large-scale systems, like pumped hydro, are meant for grid applications. Volta fills this crucial gap by generating from hundreds of kWs up to a few MWs of power over 8-12 hours.


This is how we accelerate the transition to a net-zero energy delivery system!

Accelerating Net-Zero

Volta’s vision is to accelerate transition to a net-zero energy delivery system by enabling 100% supply from clean power distributed through existing energy infrastructure.
