Carbon-neutral public transport drive systems

Carbon-neutral public transport drive systems

Strict environmental and climate protection targets apply in the mobility sector. Operators must adapt their systems to meet the legal requirements, for which they have access to an ever-increasing range of options: More sophisticated alternative drive technologies are now available on the market. This is true for both local and long-distance rail and road transport. But many rail lines are still not electrified. Trains with diesel locomotives operate on these routes, and along with diesel buses, they are major drivers of carbon emissions. Operators will likely be required to replace all diesel engines with hydrogen technology or electric drive systems.

Climate-neutral drive systems are the future of public transport: Operators need to prepare the infrastructure

There is a wide range of tasks. Operators must: 

  • Draw up master plans that effectively network industries 
  • Plan and construct facilities for the infrastructure (these include hydrogen filling stations and charging points) 
  • Lay pipe systems 
  • Develop economically sustainable concepts 
  • Create special concepts for green hydrogen or electricity supply 

Such challenges are complex and multi-layered. Solving them will require specific expertise and in-depth knowledge of infrastructure management.
