    Product Information



    Infrastructure Managers in Europe are required to operate in a neutral and non-discriminatory manner, thereby contributing to the development of a competitive and efficient railway market.

    In the railway sector, metering points for rolling stock are not connected to the grid in a fixed location - they can move. Given the increasing liberalisation of the railway sector in Europe, train movements between different Infrastructure Managers will rise and this demands interoperability.

    A growing number of traction units are equipped with metering systems for the collection of energy consumption and location data. For cross-border traffic exchanging data is vital to avoid the need to have different metering systems fitted to suit national specifications.

    The aim of Infrastructure Managers is to be able to account for the costs of traction energy consumed by Railway Undertakings.

    Railway Undertakings are set to benefit from the collection of this energy consumption data since it will allow them to identify energy saving measures and subsequently reduce their energy costs.

    In order to fulfil this aim Infrastructure Managers have established a standard for exchanging data, such as energy consumption and location data, from traction units operating in cross-border traffic.

    This leaflet establishes the necessary framework for the exchange of data for cross-border railway energy settlement.

    This UIC Leaflet will be adapted to comply with ERA TSI and CENELEC norms.
