Beyond the Iron: Caterpillar’s Electric Power Division

May 18, 2023

Hospitals. Data centers. Mine sites. Utilities. Disaster relief. A diverse list with one thing in common: they’re all powered by Caterpillar’s Electric Power Division (EPD) products. The organization’s leader – Senior Vice President Jason Kaiser – will be the first to tell you there is no “typical” electric power customer, no matter the type of business they’re in or where they’re located. Instead, it all comes down to one thing: providing reliable electricity. 

In this latest Beyond the Iron podcast, Kaiser spends time with host Rusty Dunn, sharing surprising insights into the electric power business and its direct connections to the energy transition, sustainability and services. 

Enjoy the listen!
