Facilitating the Tender for an Electric Garbage Truck

We assisted the Swiss municipality of Embrach in selecting an alternative drive technology and drafting a corresponding invitation to tender for a garbage truck. Our interdisciplinary team provided legal and technical support throughout the tendering process. We first compared electric and diesel technologies in terms of cost, market availability, and emissions. Based on our assessment, the municipality opted for the electric drive. This enables Embrach to set an example and reduce environmental pollution (emissions, noise, energy).
