Green mobility at Deutsch Bahn powered by hydrogen
17 March 2022 11:25 - 11:55
At Deutsche Bahn, we are breaking new ground and driving forward decarbonization of the transport sector for the good of the environment.
DB wants to be climate-neutral by 2040 and use for example hydrogen instead of diesel in regional passenger service.
It is crucial to understand and master the technology as an overall system, i.e. vehicle, H2 supply infrastructure and maintenance infrastructure must interact perfectly to achieve an operational optimum.
The funding project H2goesRail is playing a major role at Deutsche Bahn achieving a climate-neutral status and a fully green DB fleet.
Marc-Andre Sahba is project manager for technology-driven strategic initiatives at Deutsche Bahn holding with a strong focus and commitment on alternative drive technologies. He is heading the joint funding project H2goesRail for DB playing a major role at Deutsche Bahn achieving climate-neutrality. Marc-Andre brings more than 12 years of railway sector experience. Prior to joining Deutsche Bahn in 2019 he worked for Bombardier Transportation both in rolling stock and service business.
