Saft Ion-OnBoard® Regen Li-ion battery system: driving energy efficiency

Today’s transport must be quieter and more efficient than ever to meet environmental standards and guidelines. New energy-efficient technology such as regenerative hybrid traction is helping make the industry even more sustainable and economically competitive.

The new modular Li-ion Ion-OnBoard® regenerative hybrid traction battery system means rail operators can capture, store and reuse rolling stock braking energy for traction – resulting in improved energy efficiency, reduced costs and a lower environmental impact.

Ion-OnBoard® Regen systems are modular to fit a multitude of rolling stock including: light-rail systems such as trams, streetcars and tram-trains; electric-powered trains including Electric Multiple Units (EMUs); diesel hybrid, diesel shunting and freight locomotives, DMUs and Automated People Movers (APMs).
