The US and Canada have created a Rail Decarbonization Task Force to explore ways to reduce emissions from the rail sector.

According to a joint statement from the US DOT and the Canadian Transport Ministry, “The decarbonization of the rail sector is a crucial component of our global efforts to reduce emissions and meet the goals of the Paris Agreement.”

The two countries intend to “establish a joint research agenda to test the safe integration of emerging technologies, including hydrogen-powered and battery-electric locomotives; coordinate strategies to accelerate the rail sector’s safe transition from diesel-powered locomotives to zero-emission technologies to ensure a net-zero rail sector by no later than 2050; and collaborate on the development of a US-Canada rail sector net-zero climate model by 2025.”
