Hydrogen Technologies as Alternative Drives in the Railway Sector

Infographic: Hydrogen Powering the Railway Sector

As the world changes, so does the fight against global warming, climate change and resource shortage.

These challenges increase the need to reduce energy consumption and emissions and to provide sustainable solutions in nearly all industry sectors – particularly in transportation. This drives stakeholders in the rail industry to explore alternative solutions for the future.

With the latest developments in alternative drives, such as traction battery and hydrogen technologies, operators and governments around the world are increasingly leaning towards hybrid train solutions.

By 2030, the global hybrid train market size is projected to grow by a CAGR of 5.5%. In comparison to traditional catenary-independent drives, hybrid train solutions are more environmentally friendly as they reduce greenhouse gas emissions, other air contaminants and noise. In the long-term, they are also more efficient and potentially more cost-effective.

The infographic below illustrates how hydrogen trains work as well as the basic concepts for providing energy to alternative drives in the rail industry and addresses the importance of hazard analysis and risk estimation for hydrogen trains.
