Speaker: Lesley Stephenson, Rail Registrar, CAHA Registrar Ltd

In the years surrounding the privatisation of the Rail Industry, the CAHA Registrar was established by the DfT. Alternative Dispute Resolution has played a major part in resolving disputes between licensed rail companies (rail passenger services operations and freight operators). All public and employer liability claims for damages brought against licensed rail companies are subject to the Claims Allocation & Handling Agreement (CAHA). CAHA is an effective way to speed up the claims management process and keep litigation costs to a minimum for all participants.”

Achieving UK Rail Decarbonisation
Practical strategies to deliver sustainable infrastructure, alternative energy sources and greener rolling stock to reach the 2050 net zero targets.

In the light of the climate crisis and the target for decarbonisation of the UK rail network by 2040, this event will provide you with the most up to date plans and timelines for getting to net zero in the rail sector. The day will provide you with the methods and strategies that are helping to make this target become a reality, including the latest electrification plans, finding carbon-free alternatives for freight and the approaches to new infrastructure by major projects.

Highlights of attending: 
- Find out the government’s plans and timelines for decarbonising the railway, including the priorities for both infrastructure and fleet
- Hear the UK’s plans to electrify the rail network and lessons learned from previous electrification challenges
- Discover best practice in electrification from an international model, such as how to deliver with cost efficiency
- Explore what carbon alternatives exist for freight locomotives and the strategies for developing an overall modal shift from road to rail
- Receive key insight on the innovative solutions that are helping the rail industry become carbon-free, such as the hydrogen train and solar powered railway lines
- Learn from different train operators the requirements and solutions for decarbonisation and their sustainable development plans
