When it comes to sustainable energy solutions, taking the leap to invest in a battery system for your energy needs is a game-changer. In a market filled with options, the power of making an informed choice cannot be underestimated.
From zero-waste commitments to Australian innovation and trusted government backing, Vaulta sets new standards in responsible and efficient power management.
Here are eight compelling reasons why Vaulta is the smart choice for a future powered by sustainable, cleaner energy.
1. Zero Waste – The Vaulta Inside™ Promise
The issue of battery waste is undeniable and concerning. In Australia alone, we generate a staggering 3,300 tonnes of lithium-ion battery waste annually, and this number is projected to rise by 20% each year. But it’s not just an environmental concern, it’s an economic one too.
According to CSIRO’s comprehensive 2020 report on lithium-ion battery recycling in Australia, a better system for recycling battery waste wouldn’t just take batteries out of landfill. It could also add anywhere from $603 million to $3.1 billion to the nation’s economy, and ensure a supply of raw materials that are otherwise not available here.
Vaulta takes a groundbreaking approach to sustainability with our Vaulta Inside initiative. We don’t just provide energy storage. We take full responsibility for our batteries’ entire lifecycle. From repair to re-use and, ultimately, recycling, we are committed to achieving zero waste.
In choosing Vaulta, you’re not just choosing a battery – you’re choosing a partner committed to a greener, cleaner future.
2. Locally crafted experience
Vaulta’s batteries are designed, assembled and tested locally at our manufacturing facility in Brisbane’s inner north, and ready to compete on the global stage.
It’s worth noting that there’s currently no such thing as a Battery Engineer Degree, or a Diploma of Battery Technology. By recruiting talents from various engineering and design disciplines and exposing them to renewable energy storage, Vaulta is helping to develop skills and build capabilities that have not existed in Brisbane until now.
Similarly, because Vaulta’s batteries are designed for disassembly, local licensed electricians can learn to repair them without needing to access highly specialised tools or training, making it possible for more people to develop the skills required for our renewable future.
By keeping our production close to home, we also reduce the need for extensive freight. This not only means a lighter carbon footprint, but also translates to tangible benefits for our Australian clients.
When you choose Vaulta, you’re not just investing in our battery technology – you’re supporting local communities and the Australian economy.
3. Uncompromising safety and compliance
Safety is non-negotiable when it comes to energy storage, and at Vaulta it’s our top priority. Our batteries are meticulously engineered to not only meet but exceed industry standards.
We proudly adhere to the rigorous IEC 62619 standard, ensuring the highest level of safety and compliance at both the cell and pack levels.
Our dedication to quality extends beyond safety measures. We also hold ISO 9001 certification, underscoring our pursuit of excellence in every facet of our Australian engineering.
When you choose Vaulta, you’re investing in peace of mind knowing that your energy storage solution is built upon the foundation of unmatched safety and uncompromising compliance.
4. Future-ready modular design

5. Australian innovation and leadership
We take immense pride in our Australian roots and our dedication to pushing the boundaries of sustainable energy solutions. Our founder and CEO, Dominic Spooner, an accomplished design engineer with over a decade of experience spanning diverse industries such as renewables, batteries, defence, aerospace, consumer products, commercial products, and startups, is the visionary driving our journey.
Dominic’s path to founding Vaulta was marked by a pivotal realisation – the enormous untapped potential in the world of battery design. While working on battery prototypes in his spare time, he recognised that the way batteries were assembled played a significant role in the growing problem of battery waste and recycling challenges. With a deep commitment to addressing this issue, Dominic decided to channel his expertise and passion into designing out battery waste.
Vaulta’s journey officially began in 2019, following Doninic’s dedication and the support of early-stage investors who believed in the transformative potential of his vision. Since then, our commitment to innovation has only grown stronger.
