Electrified Construction Equipment Gaining Momentum

For Construction Pros | January 27, 2020

Electrification has been increasing in most market segments as of late, including the construction equipment industry. This has been due to the necessary technologies becoming more mature and affordable-aided by their development and use in the on-road segment-as well as increasing emissions regulations. Several cities around the world have announced they will ban the use of diesel within city limits, impacting not only roadway vehicles but also the equipment working in those cities. Because of this, many manufacturers have already developed, or are in the process of developing, electric construction equipment. Doing so ensures the equipment will be ready and available for customers in time for the implementation of the regulations.
