   ORC technology to use waste heat in MUs  evaluated  
The waste energy produced by under-floor traction equipment in MU stock may be used for comfort functions. While the use of waste heat by means of heat exchangers is limited to heating, advanced technology based on the Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) allows for the production of electric power from waste heat and thus for the use of waste energy for cooling or lighting purposes.
