Riding Sunbeams is a world leading project to connect solar panels directly into electrified rail routes to power the trains.

Direct supply of solar power to rail traction systems has never been done. But it has huge potential - from metros, trams and railways in the UK and around the world.

After extensive feasibility work and research, we’re almost ready to connect the first pilot solar panels to the railway.

Then we’ll go bigger, offering shares in solar farms to communities and commuters, so that local people will own and benefit from the clean energy powering their trains.

Get on board - here comes the sun!
