The key benefits of new, efficient and fossil-free energy solutions for mobile machines

Energy plays a critical role in our battle against the climate crisis. Unlike road transport, the non-road mobile machines don't have a clear path towards fossil-free energy solutions. The shift towards new energy solutions will bring new competitive benefits for companies across different industries. This white paper introduces the key benefits of electric future with mobile machines.

The mobile work machinery sector represents a significant energy consumer. To combat the climate crisis, it is critical to find more sustainable solutions for the sector.

The transformation provides companies great opportunities to achieve competitive benefits. For example, clean energy solutions for mobile work machinery will enable companies to increase their productivity due to better reliability and reduced downtime.
