Lithium Ion Batteries were created in the 1970’s, long before smartphones or Teslas, yet today they power these devises and many other parts of our modern lives.  Lithium-ion batteries are essential to our lives and businesses- but struggle to keep up with modern demands.  Inside the race  to build a better battery.  

Christina Lampe-Onnerud lives in motion.  Whether she’s whisking visitors through her beige offices and “dry room” laboratories, scribbling an impromptu industry analysis on a whiteboard, or just grabbing the nearest can of Coke to help a visitor visualize her companies technology, the founder and CEO of Cadenza Innovation exudes energy, even in the most prosaic settings.

How Battery Technology Will Drive the Future of Clean Energy

The Mobile Century

As the world considers how to transition to a low carbon energy future, battery technology is increasingly in the spotlight as holding the key to the future of energy production and storage. Industry research firm BloombergNEF forecasts that by 2030 the battery market will be worth $116 billion annually, and that doesn’t include investment in the supply chain. Despite this promise, there remain a number of technical, social and environmental issues which need to be addressed to ensure this full potential is achieved.


As the demand for electric vehicles, consumer electronics, and grid energy storage systems continues to grow, so does the demand for safer, cheaper, high-performing lithium-ion batteries, which power most of these devices. The problem? Lithium-ion batteries are expensive to produce, have a history of exploding—one merely has to Google “Samsung phones exploding on planes” for more on that front—and have less capacity to store energy than do fossil fuels. Dr. Christina Lampe-Önnerud, CEO and founder of Cadenza Innovation, is solving these challenges and more. Her company, in which CI is an investor, has patented a battery architecture that is safer than existing designs, creates greater energy output, and is cheaper to produce. CI caught up with Christina recently to learn more about her company and her experience running a global business right here in Connecticut.
