ICS Code (Tractive stock): 45.060.10
scope:

This Technical Specification is applicable to the specification and verification of energy consumption of railway rolling stock.

It establishes a criterion for the energy consumption of rolling stock to calculate the total net energy consumed, either at pantograph or from the fuel tank, over a predefined service profile, in order to assure that the results are directly comparable or representative of the real operation of the train. For this purpose this document takes into account the energy consumed and regenerated by the rolling stock.

This Technical Specification provides the framework which gives guidance on the generation comparable energy performance values for trains and locomotives on a common basis and thereby supports benchmarking and improvement of the energy efficiency of rail vehicles.

This Technical Specification does not cover specification for comparison of energy consumption with other modes of transportation, or even for comparison between diesel and electric traction, dealing only with the energy consumption of the Railway rolling stock itself. Consequently, this document is not applicable to the evaluation of the carbon foot print of the railway transportation system.
