In India launched the train, almost completely running on solar batteries

Deteriorating every year the environmental situation of our planet makes the move to more economical and do not produce emissions vehicle. For example, recently the experts of the Indian Railways company has tested a passenger train on solar. According to the statement of experts, which was made by Engadget, this composition will save 21 thousand liters of diesel fuel a year.

Solar panels are located, as you might guess, on the roof of a mobile structure and can generate up to 20 kilowatt-hours of energy per day. Battery train allows you to store excess electricity and use it during night or cloudy time of day. I'm sure many are wondering: «But why train «almost completely» powered by solar energy?». The fact that to pull the entire composition is called a conventional diesel locomotive. On the energy of a single star Solar system will work only knots passengers: lighting cars, information displays, fans, automatic doors and much more.

But even so, fuel economy and care for the environment will be very impressive. For example, according to estimates, if converted to solar power all 11,000 trains running daily on the Railways of India, within 10 years, this approach will save about $ 6.3 billion. As the train is solar powered has been successfully tested in the next six months, the Indian authorities plan to install batteries for at least 24 composition and to increase this figure in the future.
