Attend Achieving Rail Decarbonisation on 22 September for your complete guide to how decarbonisation of the UK rail network can be achieved. You will hear updates on the latest policy, traction and non-traction strategies. The event explores how decarbonisation of passenger and freight services can be supported, where progress has been made, and what more needs to be done.

Attend to hear experts share critical insight on the electrification of the network and the roles of different modes of traction – from battery to hydrogen – in reducing emissions. Understand how the rail industry can drive the wider decarbonisation agenda through modal shift and implementing sustainability initiatives alongside local authorities.

This conference has now passed, but you can still register to watch all of the content from the day on demand.
