By 2050, almost 70% of the global population will be city-dwelling, compared to 54% nowadays.

Around the world, city populations are growing by 50 million inhabitants per year. Consequently, investments in public transport infrastructure are booming, as cities look to create railway and e-mobility systems that provide reliable, sustainable and cost-effective services.

Having acquired many years of experience in railway electrification, R&S understands the challenges surrounding the building of transport systems of the future and can provide reliable solutions to meet growing demand.

Forward-looking trends

High-speed railways
High-speed trains that connect major cities in Europe and Asia are an increasingly popular method of transport. As demand continues to grow, a highly reliable and safe train power supply is crucial for operators looking to expand their services’ reach and capacity.
As electric vehicles become increasingly popular and the e-mobility rate is expected to rise to 20% by 2025, an expansive network of charging stations has to be created to ensure fast charging for uninterrupted travel.
