The World Economic Forum has recognized Enphase Energy as a 2013 Technology Pioneer. Enphase is one of 23 pioneering technology companies receiving the honor this year by the Forum. The companies are recognized for innovation and leadership in the areas of information technology, telecommunications and new media, life sciences and health, and energy and environment. A full list of the 2013 Technology Pioneers and the annual report can be found here.
“We’ve seen the rapid adoption of our microinverter technology since we began shipments over four years ago, and it is used in over 44,000 solar energy systems across the globe. Every system using Enphase generates more clean energy and therefore greater environmental benefits for anyone looking to take control of their energy costs and footprint,” says Paul Nahi, CEO.
Each year, the World Economic Forum chooses 23 to 35 new Technology Pioneers from hundreds of applicants. A selection committee, comprised of top technology and innovation experts, academics and venture capitalists, reviews all applications before making its recommendation to the World Economic Forum. Technology Pioneers are chosen based on their innovation, potential impact, growth and sustainability, proof of concept and leadership.
Silvia von Gunten, head of Technology Pioneers at World Economic Forum, commented about this year’s winners: “These companies are more than pioneering the way we use technology; they are transforming how we as a society are growing and interacting with each other. They are also providing new opportunities for people to harness the potential of technology.”
