Alternatives to fossil diesel use in railways

AERRL has launched this study authored by eolos GmbH to identify and promote technologies to cut the climate impact of the existing diesel-powered rail fleets in the near future. A transition from diesel must encompass the technological readiness and application scenario as well as a proactive approach to include the European Union (EU) regulations prohibiting high emissive practices.

The aim of this study is to start a conversation that takes up the EU’s query about the most effective
