Our knowledge covers decarbonisation strategies for both rolling stock and infrastructure.
This includes business advice and strategic planning to comply with political, legislative, and regulatory requirements for decarbonisation. We also offer analysis for emerging technologies, passenger rolling stock, locomotives and freight, and rail infrastructure assets.
Our team creates decarbonisation strategies and feasibility studies. This covers battery and hydrogen solutions, new rolling stock optioneering and infrastructure integration, existing rolling stock conversion strategies, benchmarking of key traction variables and specification writing or evaluation.
Whole life modelling
The IPEX team supports clients with whole life cost modelling and comparison of alternative traction solutions. We benchmark CAPEX and OPEX variables including energy, maintenance and VUC costs per vehicle mile and conduct whole life carbon emissions analysis.
Technical and commercial advice and support throughout all phases of the introduction of new build rolling stock, including alternative traction.
IPEX has published a series of thought leadership articles on decarbonisation, considering discontinuous electrification, concepts for repurposing existing rolling stock, and decarbonising the railway as a whole.
