THE MISSING LINK IN CLEAN ENERGY
Our modern lives depend on energy. Without a reliable, efficient, and economical solution to store clean energy generated from solar panels in daylight hours, we can't reduce our reliance on fossil fuels. We need a way to make renewables more reliable so we can use clean energy all day and night.
Energy has become essential to human life and progress. There is no going back to the dark ages.
Our reliance on carbon-emitting fossil fuels has created an existential threat to life on the planet.
Solar PV technology is mature, widely available and providing clean energy but are under-utilised as their energy can only be used in daylight hours.
Until now there have not been enough appropriate solutions that make technical and economic sense available to the market.
YOUR CLEAN ENERGY PARTNER
We imagine a world without fossil fuels. Ultra exists to 'unlock clean energy tonight' and want to start by helping Western Australia transition from reliance on diesel for power generation in off-grid settings, and allow you to increase your independence from coal or gas generated grid power.
We are doing this by providing reliable and economical energy storage for clean energy generated from solar power to be used beyond daylight hours, through the night, and into the next day until point solar PV's are online again.
We are going to help you unlock the full potential of your solar PV array and gain energy independence from diesel generators or the grid. We want to help you reduce pollution and carbon costs of power by bringing the right, efficient, proven long-term solution to the challenge of energy storage.

VANADIUM BATTERY MANUFACTURER
Each Ultra V40 module will reduce 371 Tonnes of carbon emissions* when replacing diesel in 20 yrs of once-daily energy discharge. In addition, its chemistry is non-toxic and is highly recyclable.
*based on 1.27 kg CO2-e / kWh
Ultra's Vanadium batteries have a 20 year asset life with a 10 year service interval. Unlike other battery chemistries, there is no reduction or degradation in energy storage capacity over this life.
Ultra's Vanadium batteries can work in high operating temperatures and harsh environmental conditions without cooling or loss of performance.
Vanadium battery chemistry have significant safety advantages: they are non-flammable, non-combustible, and non-toxic. In addition, our modules are double bunded for extra environmental safety.
Transitioning from diesel to Ultra's clean energy storage will unlock significant savings with the reduction of costs of fuel, its transport & diesel genset purchasing and maintenance.
Vanadium Batteries are an Australian invention that Ultra has refined, engineered, designed and manufactured in Western Australia, for Western Australian Region D conditions.

& REDUCE DIESEL DEPENDENCE
Ultra's V40 modular architecture is suited to a plethora of applications both off and on-grid. Here are just a few examples of applications to get the conversation started about replacing both diesel & lead-acid battery banks in WA's most remote places.
Mining & exploration camps, remote communities and farming homesteads currently rely heavily on diesel powered generators. Not only are they costly to the environment, the costs of transporting fuel, maintaining and replacing generators every few years are high.
With the right solar array and approriate amount of Ultra V40 modules, these remote off-grid locations could enjoy round the clock power, less noise and diesel pollution, and significantly reduced costs.
Communications stations dotted across remote expanses of WA provide links that are vital to commerce and life. Many such installations rely on diesel generators or solar arrays with lead acid battery banks.
Both of these options require costly maintenance. Ultra V40 Modules provide a set-and-forget solution that will increase reliability, and dramatically decrease service intervals slashing fuel and maintenance expenses.
Water is vital to life and work in the bush. From the borefields in the Goldfields through to the Kimberley station lands, bores are being powered by diesel generators.
A solar array paired with Ultra V40 modules, these pumps could provide life giving water without taking life from the atmosphere, with less noise and diesel pollution, and significantly reduced fuel and maintenance costs.
OUR MODULAR VANADIUM BATTERY SCALES EASILY
Ultra's V40 modular design allows scaled, stored and transported easily in economical low-cost 20ft shipping containers. The V40 is designed with the internal dimensions of shipping container in mind. 7 V40's fit into a 20 ft container, making a 280 kWh bank of energy storage.
Ultra's V40 module is designed with flexibility and versatility in mind. The enclosure design is only 800 mm deep with height and width designed to maximise the internal space of a 20 ft shipping container.
Seven V40 modules fit comfortably within a 20 ft shipping container. This makes a 280 kWh building block of a large energy storage solution for your project.
Four 20 ft containers with a total of 28 Ultra V40 modules make a 1120 kWh energy storage solution for a large camp, micro-grid or industrial project.
GRID INDEPENDENCE WITH LONG LASTING, LOW MAINTENANCE, GREEN AND ECONOMICAL ENERGY STORAGE
You can now have a battery that not only matches the asset life of your solar array, but maximises its potential and gives you the opportunity for reliable power and complete grid independence. What sets Ultra's V40 Battery Module apart is its unrivalled longevity, reliability and energy storage capacity at an economical price.
No other battery option can match the asset life of a Vanadium battery. With a 10 year service interval to replace the pumps and cell stack, an Ultra V40 long life is storage match for your solar PV array.
At $900 per kWh, an Ultra V40 module is the most affordable vanadium battery on the market. It's also equal or cheaper to most available lithium-ion options with a minimum of double the asset life and without degradation of charge.
If your project is in an 'edge of grid' location, you can avoid expensive new connection costs with a long lasting, green energy solution. Ultra's V40 now gives you a energy storage option that allows you to be independent of your nearest grid energy provider.
