Eress Forum 2024

June 20

Eress Forum 2024

We have the pleasure to invite all Infrastructure Managers, Train Operators and Vehicle Keepers running in Europe to Eress Forum on June 20, in Lisbon. All suppliers working with railway energy issues are also welcome to the Forum and the railway energy community. This year we will focus on how to correctly exchange onboard energy data to help Train companies and Vehicle Keepers getting a correct overview on their own energy consumption.

The correct energy consumption is key, both in financial terms and when planning running trains effectively. It ensures that Train Operators and Vehicle Keepers are treated equally in every single country in Europe and that energy data is available, clear and transparent for all involved parties.

About this event

Portugal has been preparing for introducing energy meters onboard trains and the correct and transparent billing of railway energy in the country. This year we will focus on the correct Exchange of Energy Data in Europe: status, needs, challenges and solutions. We will count with speakers from the European Commission (DG Move), standardisation & regulation groups from CENELEC and UIC organisations, Train Operators, Vehicle Keepers, Energy related suppliers and Eress. 

The conclusion and summary of the day will be used to make a booklet to be sent to the relevant organisations aiming to improving the correct exchange of energy data in Europe. 

We hope that you all can join us, either physically in Lisbon or via teams!
