Hong Kong, 10 May 2022 – Ampd Energy, a Hong Kong based company that produces advanced battery energy storage systems which power construction sites without fossil fuels, was selected among hundreds of candidates as one of the World Economic Forum’s “Technology Pioneers”. Ampd’s flagship product, the Enertainer, eliminates the need for fossil fuel generators on construction sites, resulting in a reduction in carbon emissions of up to 85%, eliminates the equivalent of up to 400 cars of air pollution from the road, and eliminates fossil fuel fire and spillage risks. The Enertainer is also 30 times quieter than a generator, which is especially important in urban environments.
With Ampd Energy’s selection as Technology Pioneer, CEO Brandon Ng of Ampd Energy will be invited to participate in World Economic Forum activities, events and discussions throughout the year. Ampd Energy will also contribute to Forum initiatives over the next two years, working with global leaders to help address key industry and societal issues.
The World Economic Forum’s Technology Pioneers are early to growth-stage companies from around the world that are involved in the use of new technologies and innovations that are poised to have a significant impact on business and society.
“We’re excited to welcome Ampd Energy to our 2022 cohort of Technology Pioneers,” says Saemoon Yoon, Community Lead, Technology Pioneers, World Economic Forum. “Ampd Energy and its fellow pioneers are at the forefront of industries that are critical to solving some of our world’s most complex issues today. We look forward to their contribution to the World Economic Forum in its commitment to improving the state of the world.”
“It’s an honour to be acknowledged alongside all of the other pioneers striving to build a better future for our world”, said Ng. “World Economic Forum’s Technology Pioneers program allows us to get together with the leading innovative minds in the world to contribute to the Forum’s mission of tackling the most pressing issues facing us today.”
Technology Pioneers have been selected based on the community’s selection criteria, which include innovation, impact and leadership as well as the company’s relevance with the World Economic Forum’s Platforms.
