Dutch Passenger Trains Will Run On Wind Energy

Posted January 20, 2017

National Duch rail operator Nederlandse Spoorwegen (NS) announced that that 100 percent of its passenger trains will be powered by the renewable source from January onwards. There are roughly about 600,000 Dutch that travel by trains on daily basis.

This is the product of a 2015 agreement between NS and Dutch electricity company Eneco. This is the world’s first passenger trains that run on 100% wind energy and on January 2018 each of NS’ trains will run entirely on wind power.

The electricity is supplied from newly built wind farms. Hopefully this contract will boost the production of green energy that other companies might follow as well.
