European Railway Energy: validation, settlement and billing system
Erex + Energy Meter = Accurate Railway Energy
Erex IT system makes possible to bill accurately the energy consumed by trains.
Erex imports data from meters installed in electric trains and secures the validity of the data, allocates it, settles it and distributes it to infrastructure managers and train operators, according to national and international requirements.
Erex is the ideal solution for European corridors, since it performs the actual calculation of bills for each train company operating in just one country or in many countries.
