Small Modular Compressed Air Energy Storage Systems

We fill the gap in energy storage between batteries that provide maximum output for a few hours and large-scale systems such as pumped hydro which are meant for grid applications. Volta can provide hundreds of KWs up to a few MWs of power over 8-12 hours.


Volta produces modular mechanical energy storage systems that provide peak demand management and reduce utility costs by 30-70%. Unlike battery or software-driven solutions in the market, Volta’s flexible architecture and small modular compressor storage system can provide long-duration storage in a minimal footprint and a three hundred percent longer lifecycle. Our system is environmentally friendly, has zero chemical hazards and is fully recyclable.


Small Modular Compressed Air Energy Storage System

The V-CESS is a new generation of the proven Compressed Air Energy Storage (CAES) technology that was developed from the ground up for energy management and behind the meter storage applications. With its modular design and flexible architecture, this innovative system offers customizable energy storage solutions that are scalable from large residential to small utility-scale systems, while providing heating and cooling as value added services.

Thanks to its proprietary control algorithms and electromechanical energy conversion technology, the system ensures optimal performance and efficiency in a large range of climate conditions.
