Renewable Train Stations

I would like to recruit a handful of student’s for an engineering project based around Train Stations.

Platforms should be covered with solar panels (or other renewables) that feed into either the Rail Grid or into the National Grid, lets stop putting fields of solar panels in the middle of no where and instead have them closer to the load demanding the power.

From regenerative breaking mixed with the added surplus of power available to get the train going again.


With a formal report we shall submit this to the Rail companies and get recognition for a project that can and possibly would be implemented.


Spaces will be limited, please apply as if you are applying for a job, this means covering letter (why you), CV and a little bit of your soul.

Email: or speak to myself (Nathan Arnold) in person.

An electrical and electronic engineer with drive towards energy distribution, storage and production across a smart grid.
