SAVE THE DATE for the UIC Workshop on “Energy efficiency of future trains” to be held on 4 October 2017 in Rome

Rome, 4 October 2017

A UIC workshop dedicated to “Energy efficiency of future trains” will be held in Rome on 4 October.

As part of its activities in the field of Energy, Environment and Sustainability, UIC is promoting the exchange of good practices in the field of energy savings and optimisation not only within its members but also between its members and rail suppliers.

The goal of this workshop is to share knowledge on innovation and research for train traction and energy efficiency, both from a technology perspective and strategic/economic opportunities. The workshop, with an open debate between UIC members and manufacturers, will cover 4 main themes: alternative fuels (hybrid, biofuels, natural gas, etc.); infrastructure solutions for energy storage; existing solutions for rolling stock energy efficiency and future technologies (e. g. hydrogen and Hyperloop).

The workshop will be co-moderated by Chloé Lima-Vanzeler, Project Manager Traction Energy Savings from SNCF Mobilités, and by Raimondo Orsini, Managing Director of the Foundation for Sustainable Development.

All technical presentations will be followed by ample time for discussions that will allow for cross-pollination and sharing best practices.
