Emission-free rail transport with overhead line and battery: BEMU project presents final report

BEMU stands for Battery Electrical Multiple Unit. From 2016 to 2023, the BEMU research consortium, comprised of Alstom Transportation Germany GmbH and the Technical University of Berlin, worked on converting a conventional electric multiple unit train into a battery multiple unit train and testing it in everyday operation.

Zero emission drives for rail transport: 3rd Rail platform meeting in Berlin

How can the switch be made to alternative drives in rail transport? At the 3rd Rail platform meeting, 120 participants discussed progress, current challenges and successes in launching and developing alternative technologies in rail transport.

BMDV supports alternative drive systems on the railways

The Federal Ministry for Digital and Transport (BMDV – Bundesministerium für Digitales und Verkehr) is continuing its funding support for alternative drive systems in rail transport. A third call for submissions for the procurement and retrofitting of alternative drives in rail transport is planned for the summer of 2023.

Federal Minister hands over funding decisions in the state of Rhineland for public transport with green hydrogen

Today, Federal Minister Dr. Volker Wissing handed over funding decisions with a volume of around 81.6 million euros for the public transport system in the districts of Düren and Euskirchen. Both road and rail public transport are to be successively converted to climate-neutral drive systems. To achieve this, 17 fuel cell trains, a hydrogen train refuelling station and an electrolyser for the production of green hydrogen as well as a hydrogen refuelling station for buses with an additional electrolysis plant will be acquired.
