30 Leading Companies of the Year 2021
Nowadays energy storage is increasingly becoming a hot topic in the debate on how to improve efficiency, reliability and price-competitiveness of electricity services as well as on how to achieve deeper integration of intermittent renewable energies. Battery can play an important role in achieving the target of universal access to clean, reliable and affordable electricity services. Battery is an energy storage device consisting of two or more electrochemical cells that convert stored chemical energy into electrical energy and used as a source of power. As an energy storage device, the use of the battery is increasing day by day such as in automobiles, charger light & fan, IPS, UPS etc.
But most of the users are not aware of proper maintenance of batteries. Batteries cannot serve as per capacity and sometimes permanently damage before completing economic lifetime due to the lack of proper maintenance. But if batteries are properly designed and maintained, batteries will improve the system’s performance and lead to economic savings over its lifetime. We introduce you to Cadenza Innovation. The word “cadenza” is inspired from the music world and refers to a moment in a piece when a musician within the ensemble is allowed some freedom of expression and artistry in the work.
Cadenza recognizes that every member of its innovation ensemble has a unique perspective and it wants to hear it. The firm’s goal is to combine creativity with deep industry knowledge to drive innovative solutions into global energy markets. Cadenza is delighted to include many high-powered “guest soloists” and “conductors” into its expanding band.
The company’s mission is to deploy its intellectual property, field-proven operational and mass production expertise, along with its key technology partners to build Cadenza Innovation into a global technology leader in energy density, lowest cost, and safety. Cadenza Innovation is licensing its technology to allow immediate access to its highly simplified design for large lithium-ion energy storage systems.
Cadenza’s technology and design
Cadenza’s supercell technology provides a holistic solution for the cell, module and pack/rack. Cadenza’s unique cell design combines the best properties from wound jelly rolls and large prismatic cells allowing for game-changing safe, reliable, high energy density solutions at low cost for EV, PHEV, energy storage, telecom and other specialty markets.
Cadenza has a very unique cell design like:
Cylindrical Jelly Rolls: Jelly rolls that are wider to those in 18650 cells. They lead to some important packaging advantages with the most reasonable cost and high end manufacturing process.
Novel Housing Support Material: The thermally isolating housing provides a tightly packed jelly roll with no cascading failure and the design is novel with non-combustible ceramic fiber material formulations bound with high levels of fire retardant.
Large Prismatic Cell: Configuration allows open jelly roll structure with shared atmosphere and it has non-expanding cells and no cascading result in space effective and low cost module designs. It mostly uses entire jelly roll capacity distribution with no sorting required.
Large format size allows easily incorporated low pressure vent and pressure disconnect designs in a space effective way. Jelly rolls’ reconfigurable arrays can optimize battery pack to format and capacity enables low profile packs.
