Action to mitigate climate change has once again shot up the agenda, boosted in no little part by the US’s re-engagement with the international community.

This year’s COP26 climate change conference took place in November in Glasgow.  It was 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 saw the world’s leaders in one place.

The UK used COP26 to showcase the country’s technological innovation and ability to decarbonise, as part of that Vivarail launched its battery technology to the global market.

Supported by the Department for Transport, Network Rail and Transport Scotland, Vivarail led the alternative traction event.  Vivarail ran a daily service out of Glasgow for delegates and VIPs to introduce this new technology.  It was 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 certainly achieved that.
