Energy Saving Best Practice Workshop

1 March 2023 - UIC HQ, Paris, France

UIC invites you to the Energy Saving Best Practice Workshop to be held on 1st March 2023 at UIC HQ, Paris, France.


UIC launched the Energy Saving Taskforce in November 2022 to provide a platform for collaborative knowledge sharing on techniques to save energy, fuel and costs for railway operations. This hybrid event will be the culmination of this work, sharing and showcasing the most effective solutions and agreeing next steps for action in this area.

This one-day workshop is part of the week-long UIC ‘Sustainability Action Week’ 27th Feb – 2nd March 2023.

The workshop welcomes both UIC members from all areas of related expertise as well as other partners and suppliers who share our common goal of energy saving.
