At the beginning of July last year, PKP Energetyka launched its first traction energy storage for railways in Lower Silesia. This is the first warehouse of this size to operate on a 3 kV DC network. The power of the PKP Energetyka energy storage would be enough to supply 55 thousand. traditional 100-watt light bulbs, 110 thousand. dishwashers or 2 thousand. electric ovens.
Thanks to energy from renewable sources, Polish railways are becoming an even more ecological means of transport. The Green Railway Program, implemented by PKP Energetyka, consists of many investments – including the construction of traction energy storage facilities that stabilize the availability of renewable energy for railway crossings. The effective operation of the energy distribution system, including the collection, management, processing and analysis of data, is supported by Microsoft’s Azure Machine Learning, IoT and Power BI tools and its technological partner – Elitmind.
