How Battery Technology Will Drive the Future of Clean EnergyThe 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.

SERIAL ENTREPRENEUR ON BATTERIES, BALANCE, AND HOW SHE BUILT A GLOBAL BUSINESS IN CONNECTICUTConnecticut Innovations
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.
