With the goals of the European Union to achieve a share of at least 32% of renewable energies by 2030, the European railway industry is pushing the development of alternatives to the conventional diesel traction. These goals were developed as part of the program of the European Union to tackle the drastic consequences of climate change.

Compared to other industries within transportation, rail has the benefits of being able to run on any fuel, thus is able to easily switch into using alternative fuels from renewable sources such as hydro, wind or wave power.

An ideal scenario for Europe would be, to have all networks electrified and a uniform system in place. Electric traction has superior acceleration rates, which means that the journey time can be reduced. Moreover, it is proven, that electric trains are an overall cheaper investment than their Diesel equivalent as maintenance is less costly and used energy can be returned into the grid. This process reduces the power consumption significantly.
