The Future of Batteries

The Peggy Smedley Show

Peggy and Christina Lampe-Onnerud, founder and CEO, Cadenza Innovation, discuss her story and how she is changing how the world is going to be looking at batteries. She says energy was always a conversation around her dinner table and knew from an early age it is part of her mission to be a kind, collaborative spirit that helps other people.

Eversource CEO: Connecticut Can Lead Clean Energy Future


“Legislation in Connecticut also encourages the development of energy storage systems,” explained Nolan. Eversource has begun conversations with businesses in the state. Nolan said companies like Cadenza Innovation in Danbury “are breaking new ground,” in terms of battery storage.  Nolan said policymakers, regulators, and utilities must collaborate to manage the transition from natural gas to renewable energy sources.

Suite Talk: Christina Lampe-Onnerud, founder and CEO of Cadenza Innovation

Westchester & Fairfield County Business Journals

Last month, Wilton’s Cadenza Innovation announced that its high-performing, low-cost lithium-ion batteries would be available through Turtle Energy Storage Services, a division of Turtle & Hughes, one of the country’s top electrical and industrial distributors.
It marked a significant deal for Cadenza, which was founded in 2012 by Christina Lampe-Onnerud, the Swedish-born inorganic chemist and battery inventor and one of the world’s leading authorities on energy storage. In this edition of Suite Talk, Business Journal Senior Enterprise Editor Phil Hall speaks with Lampe-Onnerud on her company’s current activities and its role in the fast-expanding cleantech sector.

Lithium-ion Batteries from Cadenza Innovation

Turtle & Hughes

We are advancing our commitment to green energy solutions by partnering with Cadenza Innovation , a woman-led business, to provide safe, high-performing, low-cost lithium-ion batteries. They are available via  Turtle Energy Storage Services  (TESS).

The Bill That Could Truly, Actually Bring Back U.S. Manufacturing, And help the climate, too

The Atlantic

On paper, Cadenza Innovation is everything a modern American start-up is supposed to be. The Connecticut-based company was founded by an award-winning Swedish chemist who first came to the United States to work at MIT. It promised a major breakthrough: lithium-ion batteries that were far less likely to explode than conventional designs. It soon found R&D support from the federal government, eager to promote an industry as essential to smartphones as to addressing climate change.
In short, Cadenza showcased every innovation-boosting feature of the American economy: its openness to immigrants, its world-leading research institutions, and its generous public research support.

Many questions, few answers on big battery blaze

Australia Financial Review

The investigation into the blaze at Neoen’s Victoria Big Battery last week needs to be transparent so that governments, regulators and industry can learn from it and make changes to foster the critical development of large-scale storage, an internationally recognised battery pioneer says. Christina Lampe-Onnerud, a special board adviser to Australia’s Future Battery Industries Co-operative Research Centre, says learning from such “catastrophic” incidents is critical for progress towards building a sustainable energy system.

2021 Women of Technology: Rising after the Storm

Connected World

The COVID-19 pandemic has reshaped our workforce—in many ways. For one, we have seen women leave the workforce in droves, with some experts suggesting it could be one of the steepest declines in history. Still, this goes deeper than the pandemic. This is only part of a perfect storm that has been brewing in the labor force. Enter the Women of Technology awards, which gives the women in leadership a voice, while also allowing others to see role models who look like them. These individuals are resilient, take initiative, demonstrate bold leadership, embrace membership, and are leading the charge in technology—at a time when we need it the most.

Energy Disruptors

Christina Lampe-Önnerud is supercharging lithium-ion battery adoption, globally. A pre-eminent authority on battery innovation and a passionate advocate for sustainable policy-making, Christina Lampe-Önnerud previously served as co-chair of the World Economic Forum’s Global Future Council on Energy Technologies, and has a reputation for reshaping markets.

Christina has a rare ability to translate the technical aspects of electro-chemical engineering into real world implications. Her intense curiosity, rebellious streak and analytical love of facts, deem Christina a formidable energy transition communicator capable of delivering game-changing technology solutions.

“We will not be able to achieve this if we look through the same lens that we have had for years; if we are stubborn about protecting the current paradigm, we know 100 per cent we will fail future generations.”


Large-scale batteries, once hobbled by cost, ready for ‘prime time’

Hartford Business Journal

UConn professor Radenka Maric, who serves as the university’s vice president of research and innovation, and Christina Lampe-Onnerud, CEO of Wilton-based clean energy startup Cadenza Innovation, have had front-row seats to the evolution of batteries, having driven some of it themselves.

Safe lithium-ion energy storage begins with knowing what to do if things go wrong

Energy Storage News

Cadenza Innovation has deployed a pilot project based on its Supercell architecture at an office of the New York Power Authority (NYPA), a public power organisation which serves around 25% of the state’s electrical load. NYPA R&D engineer Steven Wilkie was also participating in the panel discussion and said that in urban environments, safety needs to be much more carefully considered than when siting energy storage systems in more remote or rural areas.
