We will cover hydrogen storage methods and the safety issues around them. Then, the working principle of Hydrail will be discussed alongside its efficiency, performance, and adaptability and compare the performance of Hydrail with conventional electrical trains.
Finally, we will talk about future directions and a potential road map of hydrogen adaptation in railways.
This tutorial is organised by the STARS project. The application of advanced technologies and their Europe-wide dissemination in internal company processes should help to significantly improve the adaptability of traditional SMEs from the rail and mobility sector to the changed economic environment after the Corona crisis and to increase their competitiveness on a European scale. The project thus contributes to the European Commission’s economic stimulus package. To achieve this, the STARS project aims to support international cooperation between technology-savvy SMEs/start-ups and traditional SMEs.
