A web based Portal developed by Centre of Railway Informatics System (CRIS). The portal will furnish a perfect IT based platform for energy consumption data. This will assist in systematic collection, assimilation, interpretation and analysis of data in developing future schemes for conceptualizing, enforcing and further stepping up energy conservation attempts in Indian Railways. The portal will help Indian Railways in cutting down carbon foot print which is very crucial for dealing with the challenges of global warming.

RAILSAVER is a part of the project for “Improving Energy Efficiency in Indian Railway System” being carried out by the Indian Railways under programmatic model of UNDP via Global Environmental Facility (GEF) funding of US $ 5.2 million.

RAILSAVER conceives of specifying model for energy conservation go-aheads in Indian Railway by introduction of energy efficient technologies.
