Green energy option: Make your journeys more environmentally friendly

Do something good when purchasing an ICE/IC/EC single or group ticket by adding the green energy option: for just EUR 1 more you will travel with 100% green energy.

This is how the green energy option works

  • We calculate how much electricity from renewable sources is needed for our customers' long-distance journeys.
  • We buy the amount of electricity needed from 100% renewable sources and feed it into the traction current grid.
  • Deutsche Bahn also supports various projects targeted at promoting renewable energy in Germany.
  • By the way, as a BahnCard holder, customer or season ticket holder, you always travel with 100% green energy.

Adding the green energy option is easy:

When booking your long-distance ticket, choose the green energy option at the end of the booking process if you want to travel with green energy.
