Press release: Creation of Erex Change Advisory Board
Creation of CAB
2016-11-04 Eress organisation announces the creation of a Change Advisory Board (CAB) to strengthen the future development of its Erex IT software system
We are very pleased to announce the creation of Erex Change Advisory Board (CAB). From today on, CAB will be responsible of marking the course of Erex IT system development, ensuring that Erex becomes a standard system open for all Infrastructure Managers and Train Operators in Europe. In the latest years Eress organisation has been working systematically on its IT development and CAB is a vital step towards our future development, says Eress Director, Dyre Martin Gulbrandsen.
The Change Advisory Board consists of 7 experts from diverse business areas, coming from partner countries and Eress own organisation. These experts will strengthen Erex system by aligning its development towards standardisation, best IT practices and future market needs.
Eress is a non-profit organisation, jointly owned by its partners, committed to the development, implementation and supply of the Erex system. The Erex IT solution provides a thoroughly tested and established system for managing and billing consumed energy on trains. Erex makes possible to control and accurately bill the energy each train uses. Erex ensures that train operators pay just for the energy they use, since bills are based on precise energy measurement. Without Erex, bills are based on estimates. Accurate energy data is also the starting point for other environmental initiatives. Erex data makes possible to implement further measures to reduce energy use. With Erex trains can save up to 30 percent of the energy they consumed.
Eress is a partnership between Banedanmark (Rail Net Denmark), Infrabel (Belgian Railway Infrastructure Manager), Jernbaneverket (Norwegian National Rail Administration), Trafikverket (Swedish Transport Administration), Liikennevirasto (Finnish Transport Agency), Vivens (Dutch railway energy procurement cooperative) and SBB CFF FFS (Swiss Federal Railways).
