The COP26 climate change conference will take place in Glasgow. It will be attended by leaders from across the world – including the reinvigorated US administration as part of their commitment to tackle emissions. Along with Davos and the G20 summit COP26 will see the world’s leaders in one place.
The UK intends to use COP26 to showcase the country’s technological innovation and ability to decarbonise, as part of that Vivarail will be launching its battery technology to the global market. Supported by the Department for Transport, Network Rail and Transport Scotland, Vivarail will lead the alternative traction event.
Vivarail will be running a daily service out of Glasgow for delegates and VIPs to introduce this new technology. This will be extremely high-profile and has never been done before. The Cabinet Office has stated the UK will be delivering an innovative and immersive experience, and the world’s first battery train fully approved for passenger service will certainly achieve that.

Vivarail – world leader in battery trains and systems
Designers and manufacturers of the UK’s only battery and battery hybrid trains, able to provide unlimited emission - free travel off the wires
Future technology today
Net zero battery trains
Alternatively powered metro, commuter and regional services for cleaner, quieter cities. Vivarail Fast Charge battery-electric trains automatically recharge using its battery bank infrastructure which store off-peak power from renewable sources.
Seamless, recharging gives the Class 230 unlimited range.
It is a technology which can also repower diesel trains and extend the range of electric trains beyond the wires.
Two, three or four car trains can be recharged from power banks, located at stations and depots.
The trains will only draw power when required which maintains battery life and gives the train almost unlimited range. With three batteries on each car the train is a perfect combination of weight and power.
Designers and manufacturers of Fast Charge able to recharge a battery train to full power in circa 10 minutes
Developers of new traction technology able to convert diesel trains to clean battery operation and as range extenders for existing electric trains
Vivarail has spent six years investigating, trialling, developing and testing battery technology for rail. Today it has the UK’s only battery trains, fully approved for passenger service – with the first fleet of operational battery hybrids built for Transport for Wales.
