Railenergy is an Integrated Project co-funded by the European Commission under the 6th Framework Programme for Research and Development. The full name of the project is "Innovative Integrated Energy Efficiency Solutions for Railway Rolling Stock, Rail Infrastructure and Train Operation."

The starting date of the project is 1st of September 2006, and the duration is four years. The main objective of Railenergy project is to address energy efficiency of the integrated railway system and to investigate and validate solutions ranging from the introduction of innovative traction technologies, components and layouts to the development of rolling stock, operation and infrastructure management strategies.

Inter-relationship of railway sub-systems is highly complex, especially with regard to assessing their consumption of energy. Railenergy therefore will develop a fully integrated approach as the only way to achieve true energy savings. Railenergy also aims to generate new validation standards for the energy performance of products and services and to contribute to the European harmonisation process.
