Objectives A desktop feasibility study to investigate the evisioned Net Zero Transport initiatives. Supporting SIF discovery commencement through additional data gathering, formatting, reviewing and validationSupport and accelerate the transition to SIF alpha Maximise the success of discovery by feeding in additional data gathering, formatting, reviewing and validation to inform the SIF outcomes
Abstract Net Zero Transport - Discovery Continuity will facilitate the exploration of low carbon solutions by identifying the most efficient transition for the rail decarbonisation potentially using different low carbon solutions. It will also facilitate the investigation, for the first time, of the feasibility of developing resilient and flexible railway multi-energy hubs around 2500 railway stations and connecting these hubs to form a hub network to ensure grid flexibility, power security and emission reduction.
