Non-road mobile machinery batteries – challenges and opportunities for standardization

The presentation will assess the market drivers for electrified non-road mobile machinery, and how machines are used across construction, agriculture, materials handling, mining and forestry. These will be compared to adjacent industrial sectors - commercial vehicles, marine, rail and energy storage. The challenges for each of the sectors will be considered against the needs to decarbonize. The presentation will then consider progress in developing standards for batteries in the adjacent sectors and what is needed for NRMM in Europe.
