- Since January 2020, regional trains in Baden-Württemberg have been operating on 100 % eco-power no. 01 on six routes. The consumption of about 125 GWh per year corresponds to about 40,000 two-person households.
- 830 diesel trains and locomotives were equipped with telematics systems. The RegioEnergy Saving System (RESY) software no. 08 has already been activated on about 350 vehicles, which supports train drivers in an efficient driving style. Thanks to RESY, it was possible to save about 2.8 million liters of diesel compared to the previous year.
