Under Lampe-Onnerud and spouse Per Onnerud, Cadenza is designing modular batteries that can be plugged together in series allowing for configurable power.

Cuomo’s Energy Storage Target Goals Now Include Li-ion Supercell Technology Demonstration Project

Featured Cleantechnica

New York State has awarded Cadenza Innovation funding for a demonstration project featuring Li-ion supercell technology, a standalone system that includes a rack-mounted 200kWh, 50kW battery storage unit. The project is part of the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority’s (NYSERDA) drive to pursue nation-leading clean energy goals, including Governor Andrew M. Cuomo’s energy storage target of 1500 megawatts in New York State by 2025. As the pioneering provider of energy storage solutions for license to lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery manufacturers, Cadenza Innovation offers unique cell design that combines the best properties from wound jelly rolls and large prismatic cells. That allows for high energy density at low cost for EV, PHEV, and grid markets.

Energy storage firm Cadenza wins NYSERDA funding

Smart Grid Today

Cadenza Innovation, a provider of energy storage solutions for license to lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery manufacturers, was awarded funding for a demonstration project to further New York State’s nation-leading clean energy goals, the firm said yesterday. The project supports Gov Andrew Cuomo’s, D, energy storage target of 1,500 MW in New York State by 2025, it added.

Local company plans test run for high-capacity battery storage

The Hour

Created in 2012 by Wilton resident Christina Lampe-Onnerud, Cadenza Innovation is developing a new class of lithium-ion batteries that can be paired together like Legos depending on the amount of power capacity needed, and assembled to fit in available space.

A new startup is showing how to make batteries cheaper—and safer


Meanwhile, New York state’s energy research body NYSERDA has today (June 5) announced that it will partner with Lampe-Önnerud’s company to build a demonstration unit to store energy on the grid. Cadenza will get $1 million from NYSERDA to build the unit in White Plains (following a technical report Cadenza published in July last year addressing NYSERDA’s needs). Unlike ARPA-E, NYSERDA has more room on battery costs.
