Train that uses solar power elements launched in New Delhi

17 July 2017

Train that uses solar power elements launched in New Delhi. The 1,600 horsepower Diesel Electric Multiple Unit six-coach train is fitted with 16 solar panels on each of the carriage. That will power electrical appliances in them. The train also has a power back-up and can run on battery for at least 72 hours. The partly solar-powered train is in sync with India's ambitious Paris climate agreement. It also meets rules of 'Make In India' initiative as it has been built indigenously.
