E-LOBSTER, an innovative Railway to Grid Management SystemE-LOBSTER will develop an innovative Railway to Grid Management system which, combined with advanced power electronics, will reduce electricity losses in both the power distribution network and the railway network. The system will make the best use of the available energy on both the grids by increasing their mutual synergies and maximizing the consumption of RES production through energy storages.
