The Danish Electrification Programme was established in November 2012 to carry out electrification works initially on four Danish rail sections. Through the ‘Togfonden DK’ initiative five further sections have since been added to the scope of the electrification works, along with funding for additional optional rail sections and associated services. This is a testament to the large commitment to electrification in Denmark and it gives both Banedanmark and the future supplier a possibility to industrialise roll-out and benefit from a programme scale learning curve. Even though the Programme has only existed less than two years, it’s well underway. Søren Thorpstrup Laursen – Head of the Danish Electrification Programme at Banedanmark explains further and how prepatory work on the first two lines is already underway.

Eress is an open partnership between infrastructure managers Banedanmark, Infrabel, Jernbaneverket and Trafikverket. A non-profit organisation, jointly owned by its partners, Eress is committed to the development, implementation and supply of the Erex energy settlement system – a system that gives train operators total control over their train’s actual energy consumption. For European Railway Review, Dyre Martin Gulbrandsen, Director of Eress, explains how Erex has been developed and what the advantages are, and further on in the article, Terje Stømer from Jernbaneverket comments on the importance of using actual energy consumption data from trains for billing purposes.
As the leading energy settlement system on the market, Erex offers infrastructure managers the chance to strengthen railway transport through increased competiveness. Having been developed by the users, the system also offers a unique opportunity to lead instead of follow technological development.
“Over recent years, Erex has proven its position as the leading energy settlement system on the market,” says Dyre Martin Gulbrandsen. “It gives train operators total control over the trains’ actual energy consumption.
