On paper, Cadenza Innovation is everything a modern American start-up is supposed to be. The Connecticut-based company was founded by an award-winning Swedish chemist who first came to the United States to work at MIT. It promised a major breakthrough: lithium-ion batteries that were far less likely to explode than conventional designs. It soon found R&D support from the federal government, eager to promote an industry as essential to smartphones as to addressing climate change.
In short, Cadenza showcased every innovation-boosting feature of the American economy: its openness to immigrants, its world-leading research institutions, and its generous public research support.
The investigation into the blaze at Neoen’s Victoria Big Battery last week needs to be transparent so that governments, regulators and industry can learn from it and make changes to foster the critical development of large-scale storage, an internationally recognised battery pioneer says. Christina Lampe-Onnerud, a special board adviser to Australia’s Future Battery Industries Co-operative Research Centre, says learning from such “catastrophic” incidents is critical for progress towards building a sustainable energy system.
Christina Lampe-Önnerud is supercharging lithium-ion battery adoption, globally. A pre-eminent authority on battery innovation and a passionate advocate for sustainable policy-making, Christina Lampe-Önnerud previously served as co-chair of the World Economic Forum’s Global Future Council on Energy Technologies, and has a reputation for reshaping markets.
Christina has a rare ability to translate the technical aspects of electro-chemical engineering into real world implications. Her intense curiosity, rebellious streak and analytical love of facts, deem Christina a formidable energy transition communicator capable of delivering game-changing technology solutions.
“We will not be able to achieve this if we look through the same lens that we have had for years; if we are stubborn about protecting the current paradigm, we know 100 per cent we will fail future generations.”
Cadenza Innovation has deployed a pilot project based on its Supercell architecture at an office of the New York Power Authority (NYPA), a public power organisation which serves around 25% of the state’s electrical load. NYPA R&D engineer Steven Wilkie was also participating in the panel discussion and said that in urban environments, safety needs to be much more carefully considered than when siting energy storage systems in more remote or rural areas.
