ENERGY CONSUMPTION AND RENEWABLE ENERGY
The majority of energy used is electricity for plants operation, lighting and building temperature control. Hitachi Rail uses fossil fuels, mainly natural gas, and district heating to heat workplaces
p>In order to reduce electricity consumption, the company carries out constant work on its real estate assets, to increase their eco-efficiency. Energy-saving lighting, heating and cooling technologies are used as much as possible.
Hitachi Rail promotes the use of solar and other forms of renewable energy at its business sites and plants. New plans have launched at the beginning of the 2021, including further challenging decarbonisation goals. The company will accelerate these efforts, aiming to raise the share of renewable energy in its total electricity consumption.

RENEWABLE ELECTRIC ENERGY
Hitachi Rail promotes the use of solar and other forms of renewable energy at our business sites and plants. New plans are under definition and will be launched at the beginning of the fiscal year, including further challenging decarbonisation goals. The company will accelerate these efforts, aiming to raise the share of renewable energy in its total electricity consumption.
Hitachi Rail requested the cancellation of its GO certificates (Guarantee of Origin), an electronic certification attesting the renewable origin of the electricity sources used, for the Italian sites and offices. By acquiring and subsequently cancelling the certificates (the latter entails the withdrawal of the certificate from the market), Hitachi Rail demonstrates its commitment to environmental sustainability through its willingness to pay the positive difference with the price of electricity from conventional sources.
