Proterra receives 'Technology Pioneer' honor

Posted on September 9, 2014

Proterra Inc. was honored as a 2015 Technology Pioneer by the World Economic Forum (WEF). One of only 24 companies selected worldwide, Proterra is the only company on this prestigious list serving the mass transportation sector.

The WEF’s Technology Pioneers program recognizes companies from around the world involved in the design, development and deployment of new technologies poised to 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.
