Climate love

All the trains in the Netherlands run entirely on renewable energy.



Renewable energy is not only transforming road transportation but is now making significant strides in powering trains across Europe. The Netherlands, in particular, has achieved a notable milestone, with every electric train on its railway network being powered solely by wind energy since January 1, 2017. NS Dutch Railways, the country's railway network, has partnered with an energy company to harness wind turbines for generating the required energy, marking a successful integration of renewables into the rail sector. This shift underscores the growing momentum toward sustainable transportation solutions and exemplifies the potential for widespread adoption of renewable energy sources in the railway industry.
