Turntide Technologies Honored in Transportation Category of Fast Company’s 2023 World Changing Ideas Awards
Sunnyvale, Calif., May 17, 2023 – Turntide Technologies (“Turntide”), developer of breakthrough electrification and sustainable operations technologies, today announced it was honored by Fast Company’s World Changing Ideas Awards for the third year in a row. These awards showcase some of the world’s most inventive entrepreneurs and forward-thinking companies actively tackling global challenges.
In this year’s Transportation category, Fast Company named the Turntide Electrification suite of powertrain components among the top 13 innovative projects that are changing how we move. The transportation industry accounts for more than one-quarter or 8.26 gigatons of global greenhouse gas emissions annually. While passenger-car electrification has made considerable progress, Turntide’s solution focuses on electrifying commercial and industrial sectors, including commercial trucks, buses, passenger rail, and construction equipment.
“Being recognized in Fast Company’s 2023 World Changing Ideas Awards for three consecutive years is a tremendous honor,” said Ryan Morris, CEO of Turntide. “Electrifying commercial vehicles requires a high level of engineering difficulty, including overcoming challenges such as weight, power demands, and battery range. By partnering with innovative OEMs in commercial and industrial verticals, Turntide contributes to a cleaner, more sustainable future.”
Turntide’s Electrification suite provides the end-to-end powertrain, including motors, inverters, batteries, pumps, fans, and more. Some of Turntide’s innovative projects include collaborating with JCB to develop the world’s first fully electric mini-excavator and other compact construction machines, helping reduce air and noise pollution.
“It’s thrilling to see the creativity and innovation that are so abundant among this year’s honorees,” says Fast Company editor-in-chief Brendan Vaughan. “While it’s easy to feel discouraged by the state of the world, the entrepreneurs, companies, and nonprofits featured in this package show the limitless potential to address society’s most urgent problems. Our journalists have highlighted some of the most exciting and impactful work being done today—from housing to equity to sustainability—and we look forward to seeing not only how these projects evolve but how they inspire others to develop solutions of their own.”
Turntide’s technology solutions were previously recognized by Fast Company’s Most Innovative Companies (2021), Next Big Things in Tech (2022), and World Changing Ideas (2021, 2022, and 2023).
