ABB: All aboard for efficient rail transport

Shifting more passenger and freight transport from air and road to rail is a key plank in European strategy to reduce emissions from the transport sector. However, as rail networks grow, so does the energy consumption. Therefore it is crucial to make rail transport as energy efficient as possible. 

In this #TechInAction case study, we show how ABB Switzerland, together with partners, delivered an energy management system for a Swiss mountain railway that resulted in 30% drop in electricity drawn from the grid, lower peak demand, and the European Solar Prize last year in the mobility category for its ‘world first’ energy system.
