Proterra Honored as Global Technology Pioneer

The World Economic Forum (WEF) recently recognized Proterra, a manufacturer of battery-electric public transit vehicles, as one of 24 Technology Pioneers for 2015. Proterra is the only public transportation-related company honored on this worldwide list.

The WEF’s Technology Pioneers program recognizes companies from around the world involved in the design, development, and deployment of new technologies it considers will have a significant impact on business and society. Most significantly, Technology Pioneers must demonstrate vision and the promise of long-term industry leadership, and their technology must be proven.

Ryan Popple, Proterra’s president and chief executive officer, said, “We recognize the long-term importance of [our] efforts in achieving energy independence and protecting the environment for future generations, and we are committed to continuing to lead the way.”
