the occasion a mobile app ‘RAIL SAVER’ was launched by the Minister of Railways. This app is expected to reduce energy consumption by 15 – 20%.

Speaking on the juncture Suresh Prabhu said that Indian Railways is looking forward to make Railways greener by electrifying another 24000 km of rail tracks to the existing 28000 km in the next few years. He also said that being the biggest user of energy, the Indian Railways consumes about 18 billion units of electricity and about 2.4 billion liters of fuel oil which is more than 2% of country’s energy consumption.

Energy demand of Indian Railways is expected to triple by 2030 from current levels to 49 billion units of electricity. Decarbonising the Railways will help achieve the commitment made by India under Paris agreement to reduce its Green House Gas emissions by 33-35% by 2030 from the 2005 levels.

Ashwani Kumar Kapoor, Member Traction, Railway Board said that the Indian Railways has embarked upon Mission Decarbonisation and Mission Electrification with an aim to reduce dependence on imported fuel and rationalize the cost of energy for Railways.
