Rakes to earn Carbon Credits

The city’s new trains are hoping to make a global mark.

The country has officially taken up the state-of-the-art green technology used in them as a project to be included in the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) of the United Nations Framework Climate Change Convention.

The railways hope the power-saving new trains on the western grid will serve as a global model. Railway officials have described the city’s new local trains as low-greenhouse gas emitting vehicles (LGHG) for reducing carbon emissions and saving power from the western power grid of the country.

Indian Railways will make the case for India to the designated national authority, the National Clean Development Mechanism Authority.
