UIC workshop on “Energy efficiency of future trains” to be held on 4 October 2017 in Rome

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 four 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 ChloƩ Lima-Vanzeler, Project Manager Traction Energy Savings from SNCF MOBILITES, 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.
