Sun-powered rails: India and Europe’s green journey towards a solar-powered future

From India to Europe, railways are embracing solar power for a greener future. India’s Central Railway plans to develop 1 MW of solar units at 81 spots, harnessing their vast land holdings. The government aims to achieve 20 GW of solar capacity by 2030, making India ‘Atma-Nirbhar’ or self-reliant.

In Europe, rail companies are following suit, with Thalys using 100% green energy, Deutsche-Bahn being Germany’s largest consumer of renewables, and PKP Polish Rails powering trains from a massive rail ‘powerbank.’ SolarPower Europe sees huge potential, while innovators explore integrating solar panels into rail infrastructure. A brighter, planet-friendly journey lies ahead.
