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 will take place in November 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 is keen to work with likeminded partners to promote positive action against climate change and the necessity for new green technologies to come on-stream now.  For more information please contact
