This is the link to a source document from Canada on Battery Electric Vehicles…

This guideline outlines the recommended practices for using battery electric vehicles (BEVs) in an underground mining environment. It is structured as a specification and can be included in mining company tender documents to mining vehicle original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). It can also serve as a blueprint path forward for OEM research and development efforts. This edition adds a section on operations covering topics such as requirements for emergency response, maintenance, and operator training. It also introduces new material to help those creating a business case for BEVs. The new version also expands the existing charging section to reflect recent technological developments, adds considerations for extreme environments, and provides further discussion on e-stops, master disconnects, and use of dynamic braking. Developed in partnership with Canada Mining Innovation Council (CMIC).
