In July 2020, Network Rail published the Traction Decarbonisation Network Strategy – Interim Programme Business Case which sets out options to deliver the most cost-effective combination of electrification, hydrogen and battery operation across the GB rail network.

As a part of our DECARB research programme we conducted projects that have included Carbon Measurement and whole life cost, incentivisation and targets. In forthcoming projects we plan to create a lifecycle carbon reporting and performance management system for the industry.
