Plugging Into Opportunities in Refuse Fleet Electrification
11:00 AM - 12:00PM ET


Add another level to the technology tsunami that is propelling the waste industry into its brave new future. Alongside artificial intelligence and robotics add fleet electrification to the list as private haulers, municipalities (and their blended partnerships) embrace the idea of electrified refuse vehicles. This session will look at the opportunities and the challenges that come with an electrified refuse vehicle – battery life, power management, driver training and awareness are all part of this new domain along with the benefits of emissionless, quieter vehicles and possibly less rigorous maintenance routines. Hear from organizations that currently have electric vehicles out in the real world, what they are experiencing and what new trials will be released in 2020.
