URL More about LIRR Malverne WESS: Ioxus
Ioxus has fitted its ultracapacitors to the railway wayside traction power on the Long Island Rail Road (LIRR). The ultracapacitors provide voltage support to assist the traction power system, capturing and storing the energy produced by the train, using it to facilitate better acceleration and allowing for greater energy efficiency and reduced energy consumption. Ultracapacitors charge and discharge quickly, making them ideal for voltage support needs and recovering energy that would otherwise be lost in light rail transportation. Ioxus ultracapacitors were selected for use on the LIRR by Electrical Power worX Corp (EPX), a company specializing in the engineering and development of energy storage systems. EPX selected Ioxus to supply ultracapacitors to the LIRR following consultation with the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA). NYSERDA made its decision following successful demonstrations that detailed how Ioxus’ ultracapacitors would help the LIRR reduce energy consumption by up to 30 percent and improve railway operations.
