Decarbonization of mobile machine systems
Mobile machines are a significant user of energy and source of emissions. The operation field and environment are significantly more distributed than the road transport sector. A new “one size fits all” energy solution cannot be foreseen as applicable to the versatile sector of mobile machines. Industrial sites, urban cities, built environment, agricultural and forestry, mining, warehouses as well as ports set their own conditions and requirements to the design and operation of the vehicles. One significant deciding factor will be the lifecycle price of the energy carrier.
