Following the news a few weeks ago stating that the Netherland's national railway, had met its renewables target earlier than planned and have been running 100% on renewable Wind energy since 1st January.

Australia are now signalling their intent to do similar, but by investing in new solar farms to power Melbourne’s tram network.

I for one welcome this thinking, its about time we took the bull by the horns and do our upmost to address the situation. To turn our current and future infrastructure and transportation assets from the gas guzzling, coal burning monsters to a more sustainable solution. 

Let's face it, the technology is already here. It just needs to be put into practice.  Will the recent developments in the green automotive sector, mass urban transport needs to pick up the pace to still be considered the most effective sustainable solution for our urban centres.
