Green or nuclear energy?

Dutch Railways recently announced that all their trains run on sustainable energy. That means, they buy their energy from a supplier that produces green energy “somewhere”. The physical energy the trains run on, still comes from the nearest production site, be it a green one, a nuclear one, coal fired or other. I’m sure this Eurocity train is using energy produced in a nuclear power plant – the one of Cattenom to be more precise, visible in the background. Not sure where French Railways buys their energy.

The day of chasing Eurocity trains ended here, in Kanfen, with 2 trains almost crossing eacht other in front of our lenses.
