Since January 1, 2018, all passengers on our long-distance trains throughout Germany have been traveling by 100% eco-power.
Since the beginning of the year under review, S-Bahn (metro) Berlin has also been operating CO₂-free, thereby contributing to the high proportion of ecopower in the DB traction current mix. S-Bahn (metro) Hamburg has been operating completely CO₂-free since 2010.

Energy efficiency increased
We have increased energy efficiency across the board, with specific primary energy consumption continuing to fall across all transport services.Read more
Brake energy recovery increases energy efficiency
Modern rolling stock can convert a proportion of its kinetic energy into electrical energy during braking, allowing this to be fed back into the traction current grid.Read more
Stationary energy requirements reduced in stations, facilities and buildings
The about 5,400 stations and our maintenance facilities and buildings in Germany, as well as over 2,000 sites worldwide operated by DB Schenker, account for about 7% of DB Group’s total energy requirements.Read more
