I have posted before on battery electric buses (BEBs), as my sometimes employer (Microgrid Labs) makes optimization software and provides consulting services for fleets of these. Lately I noted that another type of large vehicle, refuse trucks have use-profiles that are are similar to BEBs. Also, each of these markets have multiple large companies providing electric versions of each vehicle.

This post is a review of both of these two-vehicle types and considerations as they electrify.
