Energy management system

DB's 5,400 stations are certified in accordance with the energy management system DIN EN ISO 50001.

Energy management at railway stations includes jobs such as energy inspections, lamp replacement, insulation of ceilings and piping as well as the replacement of outdated boiler systems.

When selecting lighting systems, energy efficiency requirements are increasingly coming to the fore. For some station light applications, LED lamps offer an excellent opportunity to replace conventional lighting systems. 

Reducing energy consumption is the best form of climate protection.

Overall, the primary energy consumption at railway stations was reduced by 22% between 2010 and 2019.
