The rail network across the UK is looking towards cleaner modes of transportation for the year 2020. Making efforts to reduce our carbon footprint and create net-zero carbon emissions by 2050 is going to take a number of substitutions. A new focus has turned to transportation and this is one of the largest carbon-emitting sectors in the UK.

Around 27% of the greenhouse gas emissions in the UK were caused by the transportation network and finding a way to store with rail is an excellent way to reduce this carbon output. Delivering transfer the future starts by changing over a rail network to an electrified process.

There is still a number of concerns when it comes to pollution from the transportation sector. Many people in the UK are still continuing to buy new cars. With over 7200 vehicles on order at any time in the UK, this represents a large number of potential pollutants in the transportation market.

It will take a change in mindset to ensure that the public in the UK is utilizing the electric train system. Keeping new trains in the system and ensuring that older vehicles can be replaced will help to improve carbon emissions over time. Utilizing our current resources can be important but carbon icing is the only way that it will be possible to reach the goal by 2050. Shifting towards a cleaner mode of transportation will take a change in mindset as well as a change in building innovation.

A new and efficient rail network for the future can deliver green transportation for everyone in the UK. As we work towards this goal, numbers of the public will have to continue to adopt this mode of transportation in order to see funding for these future electric projects.
