Cutting train energy use and emissions

Latest News

New Zealand's national rail operator, KiwiRail, has joined forces with TTG Transportation Technology to cut energy consumption and environmental emissions, while managing on-time running of trains, using TTG's Energymiser Driver Advisory System.

Following a successful trial, KiwiRail and TTG will rollout Energymiser across KiwiRail's freight trains – retrofitting up to 182 mainline diesel and electric locomotives.

TTG Transportation Technology is a provider of solutions to optimise energy efficiency, schedules and network capacity of passenger, freight and heavy haul rail; at both planning and operational stages.

Energymiser is a connected Driver Advisory System (C-DAS) providing real-time advice for train drivers to identify precise points where to coast, power and brake to conserve energy while helping ensure on-time running, and automatically adapting to actual conditions throughout each train trip.
