  • 830 diesel multiple units and locomotives in DB Regional’s fleet have now been equipped with telematics systems. The RegioEnergy Saving System (RESY) software no. 8, which supports train drivers in an efficient driving style, has already been activated on 390 vehicles. Thanks to RESY, a further 0.9 million liters of diesel were saved in the first half of 2021 and thus a total of 3.7 million liters since the introduction of RESY.
  • DB Regional Bus is currently building and planning transport services and projects with climate-friendly drives at several locations.
  • Since May 2021, DB Regional Bus has been using two hydro­­­gen buses no. 53 with fuel cells in regular services around Niebüll and Husum. They are powered by climate-neutral hydrogen, which is produced using regional wind power. One tank is enough for 400 km, which corresponds to a usual operating day in regularly scheduled transport services.
  • Since the end of May 2021, two battery-powered electric buses no. 63 have been in service in the Wolfsburg factory transport service. In addition, one battery-powered electric bus has been operating in scheduled transport in Oberstdorf since the beginning of March 2021 and four in Bad Tölz since the beginning of April 2021.
