Delivering a bright energy future for the railways
We take the time to understand your business and your strategic energy requirements, ensuring that we deliver the best outcomes possible.
The UK’s rail industry is rapidly evolving as new technologies become available and an increased demand is putting pressure on the associated energy infrastructure. In addition to that are the challenges to create long-term value by scrutinising the way businesses operate and the impact this may have on the environment.
Through inspired thinking, assured solution, integrated delivery and long-term expertise, we continue to power the energy transition and enable the decentralisation of energy to a more sustainable, affordable and secure system.
It comes as organisations are striving to hit commitments to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, with the twin effect of increased carbon taxes and levies coupled with the greater need for transparency and growing public expectations around corporate responsibility prompting them to think more deeply about their sustainability strategies.
Our work in new technologies is helping to reduce energy demand on the network, such as regenerative braking, and addressing the risk of energy losses through the network, with solutions like energy storage and renewable generation improving efficiencies and reducing carbon.
When it comes to power systems, we don’t just design and build them, but can also operate and maintain them, bringing that experience back from enduring the long-term maintenance of assets, which we own in many cases, making them maintainable and economic going forward.
We continue to have long-standing relationships with the UK railway industry and remain focused on delivering prominent projects for our clients in companies such as HS1, Southeast trains and the Great Western Electrification Project.
