Approach to Train Driving Energy Reduction

JR East has been conducting research and development on reducing train driving energy, which accounts for more than 70% of the energy consumption. The challenges to overcome in that include reducing equipment loss, increasing regenerative energy, and achieving energy-conserving train driving. As the first step to tackle those issues, the authors conducted a survey on the actual energy consumption in commercial operation, gaining basic data to work out energy conservation measures. In this paper, the authors will give an overview of energy consumption measurement in commercial operation and analysis of the results and also introduce the efforts to reduce energy consumption in train operation.
