The Moscow Metro is moving towards a more sustainable energy future. To achieve its goals, the Metro needs to take advantage of clean technology. The objective of this study is to identify and recommend the best available technologies and/or practices to reduce energy consumption and increase energy efficiency in the Metro system. An emphasis was made on finding energy efficiency options available beyond the measures currently in place. After extensive research, it was determined that ultracapacitors, train automation, and kinetic energy harvesting are three technologies that can augment the Moscow Metro’s energy paradigm. The proposed measures will help the Moscow Department of Transport shape its energy future.
