In a notable accolade, Gogoro Inc., a prominent global player in battery swapping ecosystems fostering sustainable urban mobility, has been acknowledged by MIT Technology Review as one of the top fifteen climate tech companies to watch. The recognition was announced during the MIT Technology Review ClimateTech Conference at the MIT Media Lab in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
MIT Technology Review’s latest list, ’15 Climate Tech Companies to Watch,’ spotlights enterprises worldwide with the potential to significantly curb greenhouse-gas emissions or combat the perils of global warming. This selection emphasizes businesses that the editors believe hold immense promise in addressing these pressing environmental challenges.
MIT Technology Review highlighted Gogoro saying, “Gogoro could make an immediate impact both by speeding up the move to electrified vehicles and by reducing the load on the grid to charge those vehicles through smart management of its power stations.”
“Gogoro leverages innovation to address the urban transportation and energy challenges of the world’s most densely populated cities.
