Electric heavy-duty vehicles for waste collection, street cleaning and maintenance

Waste collection, street cleaning, and maintenance vehicles are used on a daily basis in urban areas and most public authorities are looking at changing their city fleet towards electric in the short term. However, the market is not offering a wide array of electric heavy-duty vehicles and prices remain high with a lower level of performance. Charging infrastructures for those types of vehicles is also a crucial part of their development and implementation.

Focus of the Working Group

  • Electric waste collection vehicles ⇒ both heavy and smaller vehicles  for door to door collection

  • Electric street cleaning vehicles and sweepers

  • Their recharging infrastructure
