$3999 – $6999
Emphasis on Panel Location (Roof-Mounted, Near-Track, and On-Track); Application (Freight and Passenger); Operating Speed (Below 100 Km/h, 100-200 Km/h, and Above 200 Km/h); and Region/Country
Global Solar Powered Trains Market is expected to grow at a significant rate of around 4% during the forecast period. A solar power train is a train that uses solar energy as its primary source of power. The train’s roof is typically covered with photovoltaic panels that capture energy from the sun and convert it into electricity that can be used to power the train. The use of solar power in trains has several potential advantages. It can help to reduce carbon emissions and make transportation more sustainable. It can also reduce the dependence on fossil fuels and provide a reliable source of power in areas where electricity may be limited or unreliable. While solar power trains are still in their early stages of development, they have the potential to become a more common form of transportation as the demand for sustainable energy solutions continues to grow. As technology advances and the cost of photovoltaic panels continues to decrease, solar power trains may become a more cost-effective and environmentally friendly option for transportation.
Bankset Energy, GREENRAIL, Jakson Group, LG Electronics, Central Electronics Limited, WorldSolar, Trina Solar, KYOCERA Corporation, Canadian Solar, and AXITEC, LLC are some of the key players in the market. Several M&As along with partnerships have been undertaken by these players to facilitate customers with hi-tech and innovative products/technologies.
Insights Presented in the Report
“Amongst Panel Location, roof-mounted category to witness significant market growth during the forecast period.”
Based on the panel location, the solar-powered trains market is segmented into roof-mounted, near-track, and on-track. The roof-mounted segment is expected to register significant growth during the forecast period. In the roof mounted solar powered train solar panels capture the energy from the sun and convert it into electrical energy, which is then used to power the train’s motor and other systems. However, a roof-mounted solar power train is a specific design that focuses on placing the solar panels on the train’s roof to maximize the surface area exposed to sunlight. In addition to being environmentally friendly, a roof-mounted solar power train could also potentially reduce the costs associated with powering a train, as it would require less fuel and may not need to be connected to the electricity grid.
“Amongst operating speed, the below to hold a significant CAGR in the market in 2021.”
Based on the operating speed, the market is segmented into below 100 Km/h, 100-200 Km/h, and above 200 Km/h. The below 100 Km/h segment is expected to witness significant CAGR during the forecast period. As the solar-powered trains market is in the initial phase this segment is expected to witness higher adoption as the pilot projects across the world. These trains typically use photovoltaic panels, which convert the energy from sunlight into electrical energy that can be used to power the train’s electric motors. In addition to solar panels, solar power trains may also incorporate energy storage systems, such as batteries or supercapacitors, to ensure that the train has enough energy to operate even during periods of low sunlight or when traveling through tunnels or other areas with low levels of sunlight.
