Zero Carbon Australia High Speed Rail report

The HSR Project is a collaboration between Beyond Zero Emissions (BZE), the German Aerospace Centre (DLR), and the University of Melbourne Energy Research Institute.
Domestic regional travel in Australia is highly concentrated in the corridor between Melbourne and Brisbane.
The proposed High Speed Rail network features a station less than one hour from 12.5 million Australian residents.
With the proposed High Speed Rail network operational in 2030, the reduced air travel demand would require 82 fewer daily aircraft movements than the current average of 850. The need for another airport to service Sydney will be greatly influenced by the proposed High Speed Rail network.

The proposed HSR network can be powered by 100% renewable energy
