Periodic Report - HYRAIL (Hydrogen Railway Applications International Lighthouse)

Project ID: 44730
Funded under: FP6-SUSTDEV

Abstract

This is the final report of the HYRAIL project, which made an assessment of the state of the art of hydrogen and fuel cells technologies available, R&D activities and research projects related to hydrogen propulsion and fuel cells. The project drew possible scenarios of transport systems and energy supply related to railways.

The report begins with an executive summary of the project and then goes into explaining the background for hydrogen fuel technology in railway operations, the problems currently faced and the challenges for the future. It later presents the project's objectives and its structure into work packages, describing the work performed under each one. The document concludes with comments on the problems encountered and, finally, there is a list of contractors and deliverables.
