Project description

The current UIC 930 leaflet was published in 2009 and describes all roles related to the process of measurement, exchange, validation and billing of traction energy for cross-border traffic. The leaflet states that it would be adjusted to comply with ERA’s Technical Specifications for Interoperability (TSI) and CENELEC norms.

Two Commission Regulations approved in 2014 (no. 1301 and 1302) introduce new TSIs that refer to a CENELEC norm (EN 50463) and have a direct impact on the UIC 930 Leaflet, which therefore needs to be updated.

A Working Group has been formed in 2016 with the aim of converting the current UIC 930 Leaflet to a new IRS Standard, compatible with the new TSIs and with the CENELEC norm. The working group has been given the mandate to update the role model and improve the exchange of energy consumption data in cross-border international traffic.

This project is needed for compliance with European regulations and norms. As an added benefit, it will help railway undertakings and infrastructure managers to obtain improve the energy efficiency of train operations. The accurate exchange of energy consumption information will improve energy billing processes and every party will be invoiced only for the actual energy consumed, thus helping to clearly indicate the return on investment for energy-saving measures.
