This is the first installation for storage battery developer Cadenza Innovations in its home state of Connecticut, where it has headquarters in Danbury under CEO Christina Lampe-Onnerud. The company designed its system so that many batteries can be linked together modularly for the power needs of any facility, from homes to large commercial structures requiring utility-scale power.

Bridgeport selects Cadenza Innovation for lithium-ion BESS pilot project

Featured Fire Safety Journal Americas

Bridgeport, Connecticut, has announced its partnership with Cadenza Innovation by choosing its modular, high-safety, lithium-ion battery energy storage system (BESS) technology for a pilot project.



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.

Pioneering Battery Energy Storage System Pilot Projects

Battery Technology

In the ever-evolving landscape of energy generation and distribution, battery energy storage systems (BESS) have emerged as a crucial component in achieving a sustainable and resilient energy future. Recent initiatives like Dominion Energy’s Darbytown Storage Pilot Project and Cadenza Innovation’s BESS pilot project in Bridgeport underscore the importance of creating and funding such innovative endeavors. These projects are not only pushing the boundaries of energy storage technology. Let’s delve into the importance of BESS pilot projects and the potential impact they can have on the energy landscape.

Cadenza Innovation aims to help decarbonize the grid with high-tech batteries

Lampe-Onnerud said safety, specifically reducing the risk of fires in connection with Lithium-ion batteries, was key to making Cadenza’s technology work on a larger scale.
The company’s products, she said, have eliminated the thermal propagation behind fires and explosions in legacy lithium-ion systems, while still providing high performance.
Lithium-ion batteries are common in cell phones, but are small. Cadenza is developing batteries that come in much larger sizes, and can be used to provide power to cars and buildings.

Multiple battery farms are now in the works in Connecticut that could provide short-term boosts in electricity, including in Milford. Danbury-based Cadenza Innovation is among the companies nationally developing utility-scale battery storage systems.

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.

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.
