BATTERY ELECTRIC VEHICLES (3rd Edition)

ABOUT THE PROJECT

There is a continued urgency to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and growing industry interest in adopting battery-electric technologies for underground and surface mining. Since the last edition, there have been many advancements in battery chemistries on the market, changing ventilation requirements, varied charging methods, etc. that need to be documented in the guideline. Additionally, it will include a section for surface mining, best practices and lessons learned.

This project is led by The Electric Mine Working Group.

The first two editions of this guideline, developed in partnership with Canada Mining Innovation Council (CMIC), outline recommended practices for the use of BEVs in an underground mining environment.
