The Independently Powered Electric Multiple-Unit (IPEMU) project is a battery-powered train that entered trial passenger service in Essex, UK, in January 2015. The prototype rail project is UK's first modern battery-powered train and was established to demonstrate the potential of a battery / electric hybrid EMU in passenger service.
The presentation will give an overview of the Project and will outline what the IPEMU is and how it will help deliver the Rail Technical Strategy
