An overview of Europe’s sustainable rolling stock developments
There are many developments in the railway sector ongoing to make rail operations more sustainable on lines where diesel is currently the standard. RailTech.com has gathered some of the latest projects and developments in hydrogen, alternative fuels, battery and hybrid trains in Europe in an interactive map.
Across Europe, rolling stock manufacturers, railway operators, infrastructure managers and policy makers are working on shifting to sustainable propulsion for trains to phase out diesel operations. For an overview of these developments, an interactive map with the projects and descriptions was put together by RailTech.

The developments in sustainable rolling stock and the associated infrastructure such as recharging and refuelling are the central theme of the Rail Infra Forum on 12 and 13 October in Berlin. From alternative fuels and batteries in passenger rail to on-track machines, and from recharging batteries under catenary to hydrogen refuelling.
