Rockwell Automation and Cadenza Innovation collaborate on energy storage

Industrial automation and digital transformation company Rockwell Automation, Inc has announced it has begun collaborating with Cadenza Innovation, provider of safe, low cost, and energy-dense Lithium-ion-based storage solutions, to explore a shared goal of building high performance battery cell production lines.

During 2022, the companies intend to collaborate to develop a customer cloud portal to manage deployed distributed energy resources, an end-to-end battery manufacturing execution system (MES), and equipment automation to support the expansion of Cadenza Innovation’s battery manufacturing in the US and abroad.

The two companies intend to create a full digital thread that feeds information from business systems to the factory floor and subsequently out to the field-deployed energy storage systems to ‘close the loop’ by feeding data from the field back into Cadenza Innovation’s connected operations. This, in turn, will ensure peak performance of customer systems.

“With Rockwell Automation’s global industry expertise in manufacturing and sustainability and Cadenza Innovation’s field-proven operational and mass production expertise in the battery market, we have aligned on our commitment to sustainability and innovation” said Tom O’Reilly, vice president, sustainability, Rockwell Automation.

Working with Rockwell Automation will allow Cadenza Innovation to bring its battery technology to customers more rapidly. The company’s patented and UL-registered supercell battery architecture stops propagation during thermal runaway.

The supercell has passed stringent safety testing by the Department of Defense. It addresses the needs of the utility, commercial/industrial, transportation and prosumer markets and fuels rapid product deployment in space-efficient configurations.

“Driven by the global adoption of EVs, utility grid storage and dozens of other uses, there’s unprecedented demand for rechargeable batteries” said Christina Lampe-Onnerud, chief executive officer, Cadenza Innovation. “Lithium-ion batteries are the only commercially viable, readily available solution to address this need, but the world requires safer, better performing and lower cost versions. Teaming with a world-class company like Rockwell Automation enables our companies to help address this global demand, doing so with an emphasis on sustainability.”
