Sunnyvale, CA – November 18, 2021 – Turntide Technologies (“Turntide”), developer of breakthrough electrification and sustainable operations technologies, today announced it has been named to Fast Company’s inaugural Next Big Things in Tech list, honoring the technology breakthroughs that promise to shape the future of their industries—from healthcare to agriculture to artificial intelligence and more. 

The final list, which includes global giants, intrepid startups, and research that’s fresh from the labs, recognizes 65 technologies that are making waves. 

Turntide’s Technology for Sustainable Operations powered by Turntide’s patented, award-winning Smart Motor System™ improves the efficiency of building control, electric vehicles, and industrial processes for customers. With this full-stack platform, Turntide has created a technology that offers customers long-term massive energy savings. Modernizing the world’s motors is essential in the fight against climate change. An intelligent motor system can minimize energy use and maintenance, and also propagate savings to broader areas of spending like HVAC, whole building operations, campuses, and smart cities. Turntide is also tackling the challenges of decarbonization with electrification solutions for the industrial transportation sector.

“After the nations of the world came together to agree on new aggressive carbon reduction targets at COP26, one thing is clear: it will be up to businesses and governments to help the world reach net-zero goals by the deadlines set in the Paris Agreement. I’m proud that we can contribute to decarbonizing transport and transforming the way businesses use energy to make every watt worthwhile while strengthening their operation,” said company Chairman and CEO, Ryan Morris. “We are honored to be recognized as a winner in the Sustainability category.
