    On 1 January 2016, ÖBB-Infrastruktur AG implemented the new traction current market model. In the course of this, the "Railpower Client" internet application was also restructured and now shines in a new innovative design. With the opening of the traction current market, the requirements for proper energy data management for railway undertakings also increased. The new "Railpower Client" takes on the role of a central data hub. Both for traction current customers in Austria and in Germany and ensures high-quality, accurate and real-time data exchange. The new clear design ensures easy usability and an improved overview of all relevant data. In addition to the already familiar functions, such as the traction unit calculator or the geodata view, new functions bring significant data transparency and customer benefits. The completely revised and restructured "Railpower Client" is characterised by its attractive design, clear layout and quick access to the most important functions. You get all the information you need at a glance, simply, quickly and easily. In the menu item "Durchleitung Österreich" (transmission Austria) you will find the cockpit that shows you the current status of your traction current billing in which you can quickly and easily upload the attachments of the traction current network usage contract. In the traction unit geodata you can quickly and easily find the current location of any traction unit and its associated consumption data. The menu item "Lastprofildaten" (load profile data )provides you with the load profiles of your traction units, which you can download as required for other purposes. This way you have all your load profile data at your fingertips. The traction unit calculator enables you to calculate the costs for a desired train journey or series of train journeys in just a few steps. In the menu item "Information" you manage your messages and settings. You also have the option of resetting the mileage of your traction unit.

The billing information gives you a quick and easy overview of all cost components, such as the demand quantities, grid costs, metering price, energy costs, additional products such as "Railpower Zero" and the total costs. Here, too, you have the option of downloading all data as an excel file.

    Speaker: In the menu item "Durchleitung Österreich" (transmission Austria) you will find the newly designed cockpit that shows you the current status of your traction current billing.

A red marking indicates that not all attachments of the traction current grid usage contract for the marked month have been uploaded yet. In addition, you have the possibility to quickly and easily download your attachments here. The new structure also creates an overview so that you have easy access to your monthly billing information as well as a full-year overview of your costs and energy quantities. In addition, the cockpit offers you the possibility to register and deregister your traction units in the respective month. Furthermore, you can upload your operating data. This allows you to exchange your billing data with other employees.
