Newly electrified railways in Wales could be powered by community-owned solar and battery storage as part of a new study. The Green Valley Lines initiative will be led by climate change charity 10:10, alongside Community Energy South’s social enterprise Riding Sunbeams. It will be funded by a £110,000 grant as part of the Rail Safety and Standards Board’s ‘Intelligent Power Solutions to Decarbonise Rail’ competition. The grant will support plans for ‘smart electrification’ of commuter lines running to and from Cardiff.
