Benefits of NRMM electrification for different work profiles and operating environments

The pathway for non-road mobile machines toward fossil fuel-free energy solutions is still at the beginning of its story. The mobile work machine sector is one of the largest energy consumers. From construction to port operations, logistics and agriculture, fossil fuel-free energy solutions are becoming more achievable for industries that use mobile work machinery. Due to the different operating environments, the green transition presents different opportunities and challenges for different industries, but one thing is true for all: new, efficient and fossil fuel-free energy solutions can potentially transform work machines and entire sectors.
