Duration December 2019 – July 2020
Grantor DB Regio AG
Project content The project E-TeRa aims to give an overview on energy saving potentials for DB Regio AG, with the exception of traction power, influenced by the mode of driving. This includes examination of electrical as well as thermal energy saving potentials.
To achieve this, future fields of research and innovation opportunities are taken into consideration, in order to support decision-making processes concerning new acquisitions, retrofittings and restructuring of processes.
