Cadenza Innovation CEO Dr. Christina Lampe-Onnerud will be speaking at Dalarna Innovation Days in Dalarna Sweden on October 17th,  2023

The U.S. is behind Asia and Europe on battery manufacturing—but the push is on to change that

I have known Christina Lampe-Önnerud for 15 years, and she is irrepressible. She has an ebullient personality and a passion for opera singing, jazz dancing, and cello playing—among other things. But her true love is batteries. She founded the battery company Boston-Power in 2005, ran it until 2012, and then took the only route she saw available to achieving scale in her business: she sold it to Chinese investors. It was an all-too-common case of American innovation providing the base for a Chinese manufacturing industry.

Last year, lithium-ion battery provider Cadenza Innovation announced that it was developing a customer cloud portal to manage deployed distributed energy resources, an end-to-end battery manufacturing execution system, and equipment automation to support the expansion of its battery manufacturing in the U.S. and abroad.
Partnering with Rockwell Automation on the initiative, Cadenza aims to create a full digital thread that feeds information from business systems to the factory floor and subsequently out to deployed energy storage systems to close the loop by feeding data from the field back into its connected operations. The technology is expected to ensure peak performance of customer systems.



The New York Power Authority announced today that it received an Innovation Icon award from Cloud for Utilities for a first-of-its-kind battery storage system expected to serve as a model for commercial buildings looking for safer, lower-cost energy storage solutions. The pilot program spotlights Cadenza Innovation’s superCell lithium-ion battery technology to showcase the role that energy storage can serve in enhancing demand management and grid flexibility while helping to advance New York State’s nation-leading climate and clean energy goals.

U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer announced Tuesday that he has met with Christina Lampe-Onnerud, CEO of Cadenza Innovation, a lithium-ion battery company, to stump for the town of Ulster site as the location for the company’s proposed multi-hundred million dollar “supercell” manufacturing facility.
In a release touting the meeting, Schumer said he pitched the site, once home to an IBM manufacturing plant, as having “all the right assets” to become the home for Cadenza’s next major manufacturing facility.

Earlier this month, lithium-ion battery brain trust Cadenza Innovation consolidated its Wilton and Bethel operations into bigger digs at the former Union Carbide building, now The Summit, on Reserve Road. The company currently licenses part of its technology to global manufacturers and will soon expand its efforts into manufacturing activities across the U.S.
