Abstract [en]

Gröna Tåget (Green Train) is a Swedish research and development programme aiming at defining a concept and developing technology for the next generation high-speed trains, suitable for the Northern European countries. The programme involves almost all major stakeholders in the railway business in Sweden. Main sponsors are Trafikverket (former Banverket) as well as the railway industry and operators (Bombardier, SJ and others). The total budget is around 15 million EUR. The technical coordination is with the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in Stockholm. The program started in 2005 and will continue until the end of 2011.

Gröna Tåget is intended to be a fast, track-friendly, electric tilting train that can not only maintain higher speeds than conventional trains on sections with curves, but special versions could allow 300 km/h or more on future dedicated high-speed lines. Gröna Tåget shall be more attractive and more cost effective both to travellers and to operators than today’s trains. Environmental perfor­mance (energy use per passenger, noise) is expected to be still better than existing trains at lower speed.
