Wilton energy storage solutions company looks to lower energy costs


There is an energy storage solutions company based in Wilton that is working to lower the cost of energy with the help of lithium-ion batteries.

This company’s batteries are about the size of an egg carton and they’re made in Connecticut.

The company, Cadenza Innovation, was founded in 2012 and is headed by Swedish-born chemist Dr. Christina Lampe-Önnerud. In the next year, this technology will be rolled out in New York.

“When we look at the history of lithium-ion, all the lessons learned of portable power, now going into cars and peak power shaving and partnering up with the biggest utility companies in the world, there’s a need to put 20 years of experience into a little box,” said Dr. Lampe-Önnerud.

“A Cadenza super cell, the design is a simplified design. Smaller, more compact, higher energy density, lower cost and safer,” she explained.

“We have this unique opportunity to bring down the cost without subsidies. To simplify what the industry already knows and gives you, the consumer, just a Lego block of energy. And I would love for you to be really intrigued and understand all the intricacies and implications of the invention, but I’m equally delighted if you just say, ‘Oh, this is so cool. I can use it.’ And just click these batteries together and you can own part of your energy.”

Inquiries about these batteries are starting to come into this Connecticut company from around the globe. For more information, click here.
