NRIL: Development of a passenger rail traction decarbonisation strategy

NRIL Development of a Passenger Rail Traction Decarbonisation Strategy

Northern Rail Industry Leaders (NRIL) have published a whitepaper setting out how the region can decarbonise its railways.

It highlights that:

  • The railway network should play a key role in the Government’s 'levelling up' agenda and the decarbonisation of the railway can play a crucial part.
  • Railways in the North of England are heavily dependent on diesel traction, so alternatives like electrification, battery and hydrogen will need to be implemented.
  • Train operators will need to deliver rail decarbonisation strategies for their routes.
  • Early deployment of schemes and development of low cost solutions will be essential.
