How to improve energy efficiency when dealing with non-traction energy consumption? On average the energy related to non-traction issues accounts for 15% of overall consumption. Nevertheless the saving potential linked to this field has still not been thoroughly investigated. Following the Study on Non-Traction Energy Consumption and related CO2 emissions from the European railway sector, UIC is organising a one-day workshop to present the results of this study together with a comprehensive view of the main activities within this field.
It provides an overview of the composition of non-traction energy consumption, the state-of-the-art legislation, key performance indicators, innovative solutions and good practice from members in the field of non-traction energy. Don’t miss this opportunity to discover the course of action and next steps to further improve your energy efficiency!
Date and venue: 19 June 2012, 9.30 – 16.30, at UIC in Paris, France
Who should participate? Technical experts from all UIC members working with optimising energy efficiency of daily operations, upgrade and overhaul of:
- Stations and concessions
- Workshops, depots and service buildings
- Heating of switches
- Lighting of infrastructure, signalling, telecom, traffic control and data centres
- Administration and offices
Why you should participate – workshop themes:
- Exchange of good practice, new innovations and latest technologies
- Conclusions from the recent UIC study on non-traction energy
- Pre-benchmarking and state-of-the-art indicators for non-traction
- Knowledge exchange sessions on “stations and workshops” and “technical railway operations”
- Networking and professional discussions
