The future of railways could run on wind power | Impact Lab
Electrified railways in Britain could be powered by up to 70% by wind turbines placed alongside the tracks, if a trial getting underway is successful. A new project, part-funded by the Department for Energy and Climate Change, aims at reducing the carbon footprint of electrified railways using a specially designed wind turbine developed by British manufacturer X-Wind Power.
