The Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg and Siemens Mobility GmbH announced yesterday at the UITP Congress in Barcelona that they will further intensify their collaboration to promote sustainability in rail transportation. As part of the cooperation, new automation technologies will be developed and tested to increase capacity and reduce energy consumption in rail transportation by the UITP World Congress in 2025 and 2027. The joint focus aims to make a concrete contribution to the set sustainability goals.
Driven by the megatrends of urbanization, digitization, globalization, and demographic change, the demand for mobility will continue to rise rapidly. The partners emphasize: If we want to achieve sustainability in the face of this growth, we must significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions to mitigate climate change and resource scarcity. To this end, we must act together with determination and leverage technology projects that enable decarbonization, dematerialization, and resource consumption reduction across the entire mobility value chain.
