Energy is precious, it is becoming ever more precious and therefore the consumption and use of energy must be managed intelligently. In intralogistics, this begins with the selection of the appropriate energy system for the drive of industrial trucks. The current choices are lead-acid batteries, lithium-ion technology, or fuel cell systems. "Each of these energy systems has its own special features and requires certain prerequisites in handling," explained Dyrk Draenkow, product manager for energy systems at STILL, during a webinar. To come to a sustainable and economically efficient decision, the overall picture must be considered: transport processes, the desired handling performance, the type of vehicles and, of course, the infrastructure of the warehouse.

The efficiency of an energy system always depends on the particular application. Unfortunately, there is no single system for all applications.
