RAIL TRANSIT ENERGY MANAGEMENT PROGRAM. FINAL REPORT - CALENDAR YEARS 1995-96

To meet the challenge of continuously rising energy costs for rail transit in North America, the Rail Systems Center (RSC) at Carnegie Mellon University has established the Rail Transit Energy Management Program. This program is a private-public partnership of rail transit authorities, the electric utilities which supply them energy and suppliers to both the transit and the electric utility industry. The long range goal of the program is to reduce rail transit energy costs by 10% or $56 million, annually. The program is built upon an already successful effort of energy cost reduction among several rail transit authorities and the RSC. This report describes the effort expended on the program during the calendar years 1995-96.
