Dutch trains to run on wind power

A new energy contract between power company Eneco and Vivens, an energy procurement joint venture has been signed. Under the contract, all traction power for the Dutch railway network will come from wind turbines Starting this year about half of the electric trains in the Netherlands will run on wind power. But the contract between railway companies and power suppliers aims to push that number higher. The agreement will see the trains running completely on wind power by 2018. The energy will be generated from wind farms within the country but also in Belgium, and nearby Scandinavian countries.
