Community-owned solar-powered railways – on track for net zero

  • Posted: 18 Jan 2021

Imagine a world where the sun powers not only our homes and cities, but also how we move around.

Solar rail pioneer, Riding Sunbeams, is turning that dream into a reality. By building solar farms on land near to railways and plugging them directly into the tracks, it’s helping to decarbonise the UK’s transport system. Thrive Managing Director, Matthew Clayton, shares the latest progress on the Riding Sunbeams solar railways project which we invested in last year on the Triodos blog here.
