This website presents the main outcomes of the EU funded Railenergy project (2006-2010).
Here you will find the results of the largest collaborative European railway energy
R&D project on a sector wide platform.

energy issues. We have developed a toolkit for railway professionals dealing with
energy efficiency – whether from a technical, operational, economic, or strategic
point of view.
The project results in a much improved and transparent framework, with a complete

by the Swiss army knife. The toolbox is where you will find the answers to your
