Construction, Agriculture and Mining: Specialised Machines Require Specialised Batteries

The construction, agriculture and mining (CAM) industry use a wide variety of highly specialised machines. Each has been optimised over many years and decades to excel at its function. Now that these industries are transitioning from diesel power to electric power, a new opportunity for specialisation arises - battery chemistry.
Battery technology and development within the automotive industry has been driven by one objective, energy density. OEMs have wanted as much energy on the vehicle as possible to provide the longest range while still fitting into a tight weight and size envelope. This has pushed the industry towards NMC and LFP. But in construction weight and size aren't so limiting, opening up opportunity for a range of other chemistries.
In this webinar, IDTechEx highlights the technical needs of different CAM machines and which emerging battery technologies provide the best match. The webinar will cover:
  • Machine electrification in different CAM markets
  • Battery sizing and performance requirements across electric CAM machines
  • Cycle life requirements across different CAM machines
  • Upcoming battery technologies and how they fit in with the needs of electric CAM machines
This webinar shares some of the research from the new IDTechEx report, "Battery Markets in Construction, Agriculture & Mining Machines 2024-2034".
