The Edison Electric Institute (EEI) and the Department of Energy (DOE) recently announced a new partnership that will promote and accelerate the nationwide adoption of electric vehicles. Previously, the EEI announced in November 2014 that more than 70 electric utilities committed to invest at least 5 percent of their annual fleet budgets in plug-in vehicles and technologies. More and more, consumers and companies are being encouraged to invest in plug-in electric vehicles in an effort to help decrease the countryâ€™s carbon emissions.
Terex Utilities offers the perfect solution for those utilities looking to invest in plug-in utility equipment. The TerexÂ® HyPowerâ„¢ Hybrid is a plug-in EPTO system that uses stored energy from the systemâ€™s rechargeable batteries to power the non-propulsion functions of the vehicle. The HyPowerâ„¢ system saves fuel, while reducing noise and emissions. The system is designed to power jobsite operations for a typical working day and dramatically reduces engine idle time, saving on maintenance costs. For reliable performance in a wide variety of weather conditions, the HyPowerâ„¢ system is an excellent choice.
Terex Utilities works for our customers by providing a world class customer experience. We understand the utility industry and deliver solutions that matter to our customers. For more information on the TerexÂ® HyPowerâ„¢hybrid system, go to www.terex.com/utilities.

As a utility equipment manufacturer, we continue to look for ways to provide a product that meets the needs of our customers. TerexÂ® HyPowerâ„¢ is ideal for utility trucks that spend long periods of time working from a stationary position. The system dramatically reduces engine run time, so it saves on maintenance cost and increases the life of your vehicle.
The HyPowerâ„¢ system uses stored energy from rechargeable batteries to power the non-propulsion functions of the vehicle in a plug-in electric design. Crews can work for hours with these utility trucks, without needing to start the engine. The system recharges in two ways. The primary way is plug-in mode, where the vehicle can be plugged into a standard 110V outlet with a 15 amp circuit. The secondary way involves the advanced battery management system, which monitors the charge level and automatically starts the chassis to recharge the batteries if required.

Productivity. Performance. Sustainability. All of these are attributes that responsible companies work towards. Those in the utility industry are especially looking for ways to reduce their carbon footprint and be responsible stewards. That is why a number of popular topics within the industry continue to be reducing fuel consumption, diesel exhaust emissions and noise pollution on utility trucks and digger derricks.
Our TerexÂ® HyPowerâ„¢ units allow utilities to save fuel, reduce noise and reduce emissions â€“ all without compromising on features. Compared to a conventional chassis, HyPowerâ„¢ can save up to 1.5 gallons of fuel per hour during aerial operation (based on 7,000 miles and 1,250 jobsite hours per year). The system also has fewer components than other plug-in hybrid electric vehicle technologies. The system seamlessly transitions from Hybrid to Standard PTO mode automatically for charging. Best of all, it offers full hydraulic operation of the aerial device without any noticeable differences to the operator.

According to the Edison Electric Institute, plug-in technologies make good business sense for a variety of commercial applications. Utilities, among others, are recognizing the benefits of plug-in technologies for their fleets. What are some of these benefits? For one â€“ reduced operating costs â€“ due to lower fuel and maintenance costsâ€¦ Another? Quiet operation. And donâ€™t forget emission reductionsâ€¦ All of these, along with community sustainability and good will, make plug-in vehicles a good choice.

The TerexÂ® HyPowerâ„¢ system is designed specifically for the utility industry, where utility trucks spend longer periods of time working and idling the engine from a stationary position. Almost all other plug-in hybrid electric vehicle technologies are better suited for stop-and-go applications.

This video of the TerexÂ® HyPowerâ„¢ Hybrid System, used in aerial lift, bucket truck, and digger derrick applications, gives an overall look at its features, advantages, and benefits. This PHEV is an ideal hybrid for the utility industry. It features a robust system that allows utility trucks to become state-of-the-art plug-in hybrid electric vehicles. It’s designed to operate the boom, lights, flashers, and even has an option to run cab heat, air conditioning, and exportable power without even starting the engine.
The TerexÂ® HyPowerâ„¢ hybrid system is the perfect solution for those utilities working to dedicate 5% of their fleet plan to plug in electric vehicles. The Edison Electric Institute (EEI) recently released a white paper that encourages investor-owned utilities to meet an industry-wide goal of dedicating 5% of its annual fleet purchase plan to plug-in electric vehicles and technologies (see post from July 24).
The Terex HyPower hybrid system features a plug-in Power Take-Off (PTO) that uses stored energy from the systemâ€™s rechargeable batteries to power the non-propulsion functions of the utility vehicle. The system helps customers save up to 1,500 gallons of fuel per year, based on 7,000 miles/year and 1,250 jobsite hours per year, and has also been California Air Resources Board (CARB) approved.
The Terex HyPower hybrid system is designed to operate the boom, lights, flashers, and has an option to run cab heat, air conditioning, and exportable power â€“ even without starting the engine. In addition, the system reduces exhaust emissions on the job while allowing operators to function in a relatively quiet work environment, a benefit for noise sensitive job sites.

In June 2014, the Edison Electric Institute (EEI) released a white paper that encourages investor-owned utilities to meet an industry-wide goal of dedicating 5% of its annual fleet purchase plan to plug-in electric vehicles and technologies. The following article summarizes the white paper.
The Terex HyPower Hybrid is a plug-in hybrid PTO system that uses stored energy from the systemâ€™s rechargeable batteries to power the non-propulsion functions of the vehicle. The Terex system is designed to reduce, or even eliminate, the use of fuel for the work done while the vehicle is sitting still. By using plug-in electric hybrid technology to operate the boom and accessories, the Terex HyPower system reduces a whole range of pollution produced from diesel fuel and eliminates the noise from an idling engine normally used to run the hydraulic system.

Our TerexÂ® HyPowerâ„¢ features a robust and retrofittable hybrid system that allows utility trucks to become state-of-the-art plug-in hybrid electric vehicles. Here are six things to know on what the TerexÂ® HyPowerâ„¢ offers:
- Fuel Savings – The HyPowerâ„¢ system can save up to 1.2 gallons of fuel per hour of work. This adds up to thousands of gallons over its lifetime.
- Reduced Noise – Traditional Utility Trucks are very noisy while they’re working. Since the HyPowerâ„¢ system reduces or eliminates the need for the vehicle to idle on the jobsite it greatly reduces noise. This is good for the Utility Workers and for anyone living nearby.
- Decreased Maintenance – Since the vehicle’s engine doesn’t have to operate to power job site work it runs up to 65% less. This reduced operating time means that repairs and maintenance of the engine decrease greatly.
- Increased In Service Time – By reducing the fuel used by the vehicle our system reduces the number of times the vehicle has to be refueled. How much more time would a crew have if they refueled 400 fewer times.
- Retrofits – The HyPowerâ„¢ system was designed to be simple and reliable. Because it doesn’t interfere with the drive train it’s easily retrofitted on most chassis and for almost all Terex Utility models.
- No Limitations – Most other Hybrids force you to compromise on the chassis, drivetrain, working space, towing capacity or operating time. HyPowerâ„¢ system has none of these limits allowing you to work as you always have.
