The German state of Lower Saxony has recently shifted its focus from hydrogen fuel-cell trains to battery electric trains as part of its transportation strategy.

The local transport authority, known as LNVG (Landesnahverkehrsgesellschaft Niedersachsen), has announced its comprehensive plan to introduce 102 battery electric trains starting in 2029.

Based on careful assessment and evaluation, LNVG has concluded that battery electric trains offer a more cost-effective and efficient solution for future train operations.
