2018 Partnerships – Looking to 2019 and Beyond
Last year was one of great accomplishments for Cadenza Innovation. In the fall, Cadenza Innovation and Shenzhen BAK Power Battery Co., Ltd. (BAK) announced plans to manufacture Li-ion cells and modules based on Cadenza Innovation’s supercell architecture. Several months earlier, Cadenza Innovation was awarded funding for a demonstration project to further New York State’s nation-leading clean energy goals and support Governor Andrew M. Cuomo’s energy storage target of 1500 megawatts in New York State by 2025. Based on the company’s supercell technology, the initiative will showcase a stand-alone system that includes a rack-mounted 200kWh, 50kW battery storage unit. The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) is funding the demo, which will be located at the New York Power Authority’s (NYPA) headquarters in White Plains.
