More and more companies are switching their traditional diesel-powered construction machinery to either hybrid or completely electric. Governments around the world are pushing construction companies to improve their environmental impact. With this Government pressure many companies such as Ausa, Bomag, Doosan Bobcat, JCB and many others have introduced electric or hybrid machines. Studies have shown on Equipment World, the electric construction equipment market is forecast to grow to $24.8 billion by 2027 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 22%. Additional studies have pushed the number as high as $42.4 billion by 2030.
According to Intelligent Living, Building and Construction combined are responsible for 39% of all carbon emissions worldwide. With such a high figure, companies are expected to come up with a contingency plan and introduce more hybrid and electric machines to their collection to reduce their carbon footprint.
Intelligent Living also cited WorldGBC, which reported a new bold plan of action that many governments around the world will enforce:

Despite challenges like upfront costs, limited range, and charging infrastructure, the numerous advantages of electric construction machines, including their positive impact on the environment, cost savings, and technological progress, make them an increasingly attractive choice for the construction industry’s future.
