Industrial and Commercial
IDTechEx forecasts that over the next decade, the largest global EV value sector will be industrial and commercial for land, water and air - accounting for nearly 50% of the total hybrid and pure electric vehicle business. It is fully analysed in the IDTechEx report - Industrial & Commercial Hybrid & Pure Electric Vehicles 2013-2023: Forecasts, Opportunities, Players.
Initial marketing will be focused on the electric cart market, such as the golf cart, security, maintenance, and transport vehicles.
First Responders Race to Keep Up with Emerging Electronic Technology. In addition to active visual warnings, auxiliary lighting, and audible warning devices, efficient emergency responses require that emergency responders can communicate with a dispatcher, with each other, and often with other facilities (such as hospitals or public utilities). Some of the additional electronics include; Mobile data terminals, or MDTs, which are computers that communicate with the dispatcher's computer, laptop computers with Wi-Fi connections, usually with a mounting point or docking station within the vehicle, PA or bullhorn to communicate with other workers, or with members of the public, car phones or portable cellular phones, and dedicated charging units for portable two-way radios.
This shift also requires an affordable method of generating the needed power. More electronics means more power needed. Magne Generator's on-board energy generating turbines will provide power from all four wheels.
Pentagon Seeks More Energy for Their Vehicles. A strong argument could be made that given the recent innovations in ground-vehicle armor, and vehicle-mounted communications and sensor equipment brought about by the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the U.S. military is in a "Golden Age" for tactical vehicles. With more and more electronics being integrated additional power is required for them to all function in tandem. Magne Generator's on-board energy generating turbines will provide power from all four wheels.
Michael Gallagher, program manager for expenditionary power systems for the Marine Corps, has stated in an article for Aviation Week's DTI June 02,2009: To put this in perspective, when Humvees were first fielded in the 1980s, they had 60-amp. alternators. Compare that to the 600-800-amp. alternators the M-ATV and Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV) are expected to use. But even that exponentially enhanced requirement, Gallagher admitted, might not be enough on a future battlefield. Vehicles today are expected to support a mix of military and commercial off-the-shelf electronics, he said, all with different power requirements. And the need will grow.

Electric Vehicle Forecasts, Trends and Opportunities 2014-2024
IDTechEx Predicts the Total Hybrid & Pure Electric Vehicles Market will be US$334 Billion by 2023.
Many profitable niches are emerging just as the largest major sectors are changing in importance; the industrial and commercial sector is now bigger and much more profitable than e-cars, and is set to remain so for at least eight more years. Supercapacitors sometimes replace traction batteries, Silicon carbide and gallium nitride power components will partly replace silicon ones and multiple energy harvesting will become commonplace. Even the vehicles themselves are radically changing. Pure electric buses are becoming more popular than hybrid ones. At this time pure electric cars will take off in sales as range improves up to five fold, due to much more than improvement in batteries, and cost becomes acceptable for mass use.
