Going Electric

Sustainability is a high priority for the London organising committee for the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. This Catalyst article looks at their aim for all spectators to be able to get to the Olympic Park via public transport or by walking or cycling. In particular, the article focuses on the railway services which with an estimated combined capacity of 240,000 passengers per hour must be energy-efficient and reliable.

The article is from Catalyst: Secondary Science Review 2012, Volume 22, Issue 4.
