Carderock analysis of the Cadenza technology by the US Consumer Product Safety Commission
The Cadenza Innovation design is independent of subcomponent choice, meaning it could be completely compatible with any desired anode, cathode, electrolyte, or separator material. Even when subjected to an internal short circuit (produced using the NASA and NREL developed internal short circuit device) supercells produced using the Cadenza architecture and a standard LIB chemistry did not undergo propagating thermal runaway (Figure 33) (67). Testing of modules containing six supercells in series conducted at NSWCCD showed that overcharge, nail penetration, external short circuit, crush and over temperature testing all showed either no thermal runaway, or thermal runaway occurred only under extreme test conditions (crush above 100 kN load and over temperature > 200C). Development of the Cadenza super cell and evaluation by NSWCCD was sponsored by the Advanced Research Project Agency- Energy (ARPA-e).

World Economic Forum – The Speed of the Energy Transition
Will the global energy transition from fossil fuels to sustainable energy be gradual or rapid? This
key issue for the 2020s has profound implications for governments, energy producers, technology
providers as well as industrial and private consumers. But, more importantly, the difference between
a gradual and rapid transition will determine the climate future of humanity. A gradual transition
will mean that the goals of the Paris Agreement will be badly missed. A rapid transition will give
humanity a chance to meet the goals of the Paris Agreement and keep temperature well below 2
