Cadenza Innovation Founder Explores Battery Technology’s Critical Role in the Clean Energy Transition
Lithium-ion Pioneer Dr. Christina Lampe-Onnerud is the Featured Speaker in World Economic Forum Strategic Intelligence Briefing, S&P Global Platts Podcast and C200’s Executive Women’s Leadership Webinar
Cadenza Innovation, the award-winning lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery technology company, today announced that Founder and CEO Dr. Christina Lampe-Onnerud was the featured speaker in virtual events by leading organizations, including the World Economic Forum, S&P Global Platts and C200. The events showcased the renowned battery expert discussing Li-ion's instrumental role in driving the clean energy transformation in the fight against climate change.
"In just the past few months, we have experienced dramatic environmental changes as a result of curbing our fossil fuel usage - citizens in India can now see the Himalayas for the first time in decades and satellites have a clearer view of the Earth," said Dr. Lampe-Onnerud. "The COVID-19 crisis has escalated renewable technology adoption that was already well underway. Now that we are in the midst of exiting the old energy paradigm, collectively, we have an opportunity to re-engage and do something amazing in fostering a more sustainable future."

• The World Economic Forum Strategic Intelligence Briefing: "Lithium-ion Taking the Lion's Share"
Summary: On the heels of leading discussions at the World Economic Forum's 50th Annual Meeting, Dr. Lampe-Onnerud was invited to join Andrew Berkley, lead data scientist at the World Economic Forum, and Kristen Panerali, head of electricity industry at the World Economic Forum, to discuss the potential of Li-ion batteries and their role in the clean energy transition. Notably, Dr. Lampe-Onnerud chairs the World Economic Forum's Global Future Council on Energy Technologies and is the only two-time World Economic Forum Technology Pioneer winner.
• S&P Global Platts LIVE Podcast: "Battery Technology to Play an Important Part of Broader Energy Transition"
Summary: Battery technology for electric vehicles (EVs) and energy storage is integral to the broader energy transition. Dr. Lampe-Onnerud joined Roman Kramarchuk, head of energy scenarios, policy and technology analytics at S&P Global Platts, to explore this critical topic in a virtual alternative to S&P Global Platts' face-to-face events and forums. Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, Dr. Lampe-Onnerud was scheduled to be a panelist alongside speakers from National Grid US and ConEdison at S&P Global Platts' 15th Annual Northeast Power & Gas Markets Conference.
• C200's Executive Women's Leadership Webinar: "Taking the Temp on Climate Change"
Summary: Oxford Dictionaries named "Climate Emergency" its word of the year for 2019. It's no wonder. The 2010s were the hottest decade on record. And a recent UN Emissions Gap Report declared 2020 a "critical year for climate action." What can we do to turn the tide? Dr. Lampe-Onnerud explored the novel Li-ion battery designs - paired with new business/financial models and partnerships - that are fostering decisive actions on a global basis to combat climate change.
