Workshop on non-traction energy consumption and related CO2 emissions from the European railway sector

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
