Trains powered by wind energy

All the trains powered by wind energy in Netherland. The Netherlands is one of the most important countries in the world in terms of solar power, tidal power and wind power, so it would be surprising to know. Due to the strong winds in the coastal country, wind turbines are being installed to generate electricity.

Why dutch trains run on wind energy

Excessive use of fossil fuels, such as coal, mineral oil and steam, is likely to run out in the future. So now the emphasis is on unconventional or renewable renewable energy sources. The country is in high demand for wind power so that all trains running there are powered by wind.

A train can travel up to 120 miles per hour, generating as much electricity as it generates from one windmill per hour. Accordingly, about 5,000 and a half trains pass daily in the Netherlands, which can accommodate up to 600,000 passengers. These trains are powered by wind-powered electricity, so there is no problem with pollution. Similarly, the use of renewable energy sources such as wind is not a risk of energy crisis.

In 2016, Dutch train companies, particularly industry leader NS, collaborated with power provider Eneco to have train systems running on 75 percent wind power, with a goal of 100 percent set for 2018, but achieved last week. As a result, NS is the world’s first train business to rely entirely on wind energy.
