Description


Rail Alliance and Birmingham Centre for Rail Research and Education (BCRRE) will be running its FIRST EVER Sustainability and Decarbonisation event in partnership with Quinton Rail Technology Centre at Long Marston.

Greenhouse gas emissions in the UK will be cut to almost zero by 2050, under the terms of a new government plan to tackle climate change. However, according to leading rail experts in sustainability and rolling stock. Britain's railways could remove diesel-only passenger trains from the network and make substantial progress towards decarbonising their operations by 2040,

Championing sustainability and decarbonisation is a major focus for Rail Alliance and BCRRE and in partnership with Quinton Rail Technology Centre, the ambition is to provide a space for the industry to come together and showcase and demonstrate the latest innovation that is taking place right now in rail.
