Electric Power Sources for Farming

I am interested in hearing from you about what you think about electrifying the farming process. Is it reasonable to think that farmers would use an bio-diesel/electric Hybrid powered tractor with an electric generator to power their farm equipment?

Raussendorf of Germany has developed a Power Pack for the generation of mobile electricty: http://www.raussendorf.de/powerpack-45.html. Is this maybe an option to help facilitate the electrification of the farming process?

I am looking forward to hearing your opinion, thanks!
