The UIC Energy Efficiency and CO2 Emissions Experts Network is happy to invite you to take part in the workshop "Energy efficient Infrastructures" that will be held in Paris on 2 July 2018 in Paris, in the direct vicinity of UIC Headquarters.


After Eco-driving, eco-stabling and measuring energy consumption, other energy saving potentials have been identified by the Energy Efficiency and CO2 Emissions Experts Network in the energy management of railway infrastructures.
Therefore, this new workshop will focus on the following topics:

Workshop topics

  • Lighting of platforms, shunting/stabling areas and maintenance shops
    • Use of virtual reality,
