Davos News: Cadenza Innovation Founder Among Industry Experts to Speak on Global Battery Alliance Panel

January 23, 2019

DAVOS-KLOSTERS, Switzerland, Jan. 23, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cadenza Innovation today announced that Founder and CEO Dr. Christina Lampe-Onnerud will participate in the Global Battery Alliance’s upcoming press conference – “Cleaning up the Battery Boom” – at the World Economic Forum’s Annual Meeting in Davos on Thursday, January 24.

The battery market is primed for exponential growth. By 2050, batteries will power an electric vehicle (EV) market worth $2 trillion, and during the coming two decades, global cumulative energy storage deployments are forecast to grow more than thirty-fold. Importantly, the expansion of battery storage into the world’s energy and transport systems could be a game-changer in the fight against climate change.

The Global Battery Alliance press conference will explore how, without intervention, this potential is undermined by social and environmental impacts as well as unexploited innovation potential along the global battery value chain.
