USING TECHNICAL EXPERTISE TO ADVANCE AND INVEST IN ENERGY TECHNOLOGY
Volta separates fact from fiction to find winning technologies in the opportunity-rich energy storage market.
Volta identifies and invests in battery and energy storage technology, including integration hardware and software, after performing deep diligence with the support of unparalleled global research institutions. Volta connects the most promising energy-storage innovators with select corporate investors, delivering returns for all.
FOCUSED ON ENERGY STORAGE
And the opportunity is now. The fundamental shift in the way the world produces, distributes, and uses energy has created a booming, global market for interconnected energy storage technologies — from electric vehicles to distributed power generation for the grid.
OUR NETWORK OF INNOVATORS IS STRONG
Volta sources, validates, and develops the most promising technologies working with the members of our network of innovators, which spans the country from MIT to Stanford, includes every national lab and major university in the U.S., and extends to leading universities in the U.K., Germany, Japan, and China. Through our research contract with Argonne National Laboratory, Volta performs research to validate technology from any source and solve technical challenges in otherwise valuable propositions. Argonne is the world leader in analyzing, inventing, developing, testing, and scaling of early-stage energy storage materials and systems.
Volta’s team evaluates opportunities from both technological and business perspectives. Our team has decades of experience moving innovations from the lab to market, investing in entrepreneurial efforts, and navigating the R&D capabilities of the national laboratory system. Technologists lead the early phases of the Volta process, identifying and overcoming flaws in a prospective technology’s physics and engineering. Financial analysts lead the review of the business model and financials of the company built around the opportunity.
Volta’s core team includes technologists that have led product development research and financial equity investors with experience in multiple sectors. They are supported by strategic partners who are industry leaders. The Volta team has the expertise and ability to directly impact the energy landscape and support Volta’s mission to identify disruptions, separate winners from losers, and collaborate with end users.
