1 High-Speed Rail for California
Presentation CHSRA Board Meeting German Federal Ministry of Transport Siemens AG, DB Mobility Logistics AG Sacramento, CA

2 Agenda Germany’s Competence in High Speed Rail High Speed Rail – The German Experience Our Recommendations and our Commitment Lessons Learned and International Experience Importance of being local - We are a USA Team

3 Germany’s HSR infrastructure has grown continuously – Completion by 2025
1991: Launching first High Speed service Hamburg – Munich on new and upgraded lines Continuous development of HSR network – major milestone: travel time reduction on Frankfurt - Cologne by 50% Currently HSR provides 50% of long distance services – 60% in 2020 By 2025 Completion of the German HSR infrastructure (approx miles) Hamburg Berlin Hanover Cologne Frankfurt Nuremberg Stuttgart Munich 125 to 150 mph > 150 mph and more projected

4 The German rail network is one of the largest in Europe and one of the most modern worldwide
Germany’s HSR connects many regional centers through a dense network with regional feeder systems The passenger rail market in Germany is fully deregulated since 1994 – free market access for more than 50 operators Average Market share of Rail based long distance traffic is over 11% In some HSR lines market share exceeds 50% (i.e. Frankfurt – Cologne) Rail network in Germany 60 mph – 80 mph 80 mph – 200 mph Modal shift Frankfurt - Cologne Werte Frankfurt/ M. – Köln: RAIL: Before starting HSR (2002): Pax After starting HSR (2005) Pax AIR: Before starting HSR (2002): Pax After starting HSR (2005) Pax Erinnerung: Bezug auf Rhein Main während Präsentation CHSRA – fährt auf dieser Strecke ein Woche vorher Before starting HSR1 After starting HSR1 -72% RAIL AIR +26% 1) Start HSR Cologne – Frankfurt am Main in 2003, passenger figures

5 HSR in Germany is based on an excellent collaboration between the Government and Industry
Since ‘94 fully deregulated passenger & freight transport market 144,000 miles road network 21,000 miles main line rail 163 million flight passengers 73% of population in cities 600 cars per 1000 inhabitants Active in 3 sectors: Industry, Energy, Healthcare $110''0 revenue (USA: $ 22''0) 420,000 employees in 190 countries (USA: 70,000) 165 years in business, 25 years production in California No.1 Sustainability Portfolio High Speed Rail in Germany, Russia, Spain and China Integrated provider of infrastructure and operation $ 47''0 revenue (USA: $ 3''0) 240,000 employees (USA: 6,000) 27,000 passenger trains per day and 5,400 freight trains per day Logistic forwarder in USA since 1947 All data as of year 2008



8 HSR is the backbone of a passenger rail system – regions get access to HSR by attractive feeder systems HSR feeder system HSR is the backbone of public transportation systems Different modes of transport facilitate region wide access to HSR and secure the capacity utilization Connectivity between all different modes of transport has to be ensured (station parking, taxi, bus, light rail, commuter rail etc.) HSR connects and increases the value of entire regions and strengthens the competitiveness Major City A City B City C Major City D City HSR Line Feeder system (taxi, station parking, bus, commuter rail, light rail)

9 Passenger Intermodality is the key for a HSR network
Interchange stations to link with feeder systems Direct connection of airline hubs by rail Park & rail facilities for commuters Car rental / car sharing at station New ticket systems, e.g. integrated city transit & HSR tickets Passenger intermodality Bicycle Car Rental car Taxi Plane Commuter Rail Bus Metro High Speed Rail Light Rail 9

10 HSR supports successful regional development… and results in strong economic growth
Land value increases significantly in cities with HSR access Commercial and industrial estate developments around HSR stations result in jobs and fiscal revenues HSR gives impulses for touristic development and provides high-capacity transport for events Next Chart: HSR means Green Transport 10 10

11 HSR is climate-friendly and reduces energy demand and CO2 emissions
Our protection program 2020 for reducing energy consumption CO2 emissions Specific CO2 reduction of DB AG ( ) Modern Rolling Stock -36 % 2006 1990 Spec. CO2-Emission Maximizing Network Capacity Use of Renewable Energies Elements of CO2 reduction Energy-saving Operation Modal net-working and modal shift Modern Electrification New climate protection goal for 2020 (all DB Group activities) is -20 percent compared to 2006

12 Areas with good wind conditions Areas ideally located for solar energy
Solar and wind power can run the CA High Speed Rail System and reduces energy consumption German Partners have an extensive experience in reducing CO2 and energy consumption California´s goal1) to reduce CO2 emissions are as ambitious as in Germany Energy supply for the CA HSR System from a combination of solar and wind power Solar and wind power reduces the dependency on foreign energy sources Zero Emission Train Areas with good wind conditions Areas ideally located for solar energy 1) California´s goal of 20% of power generation through Zero Emission technology by 2020 Germany: CO2 reduction target of 25% by 2020

13 Our expertise in technology transfer and international experience
German industry has helped many countries to design, build and implement rail systems DB is the No.1 European Rail Network Operator with extensive international experience working with local operators Siemens won 5 of the latest 8 international orders and has vast experience transferring proven technology, adapting to local requirements ... but all business is local: Localized production, maintenance and service delivery to create jobs and to be where the customers are. International High Speed Trains China Russia Spain International Operations Know-How Siemens has built trains for China, Russia and Spain We have localized production of our trains in China and provide maintenance in all of the countries where we deliver our trains The last 4 of 5 orders for high speed trains were with Siemens Siemens has a strong base in California and have been there for over 30 years. We have installed our signaling and electrification systems all over the world and have been able to adapt to different local requirements on train control Demonstrate that DB (co)operates with many competitors on their own rail network DBI have assisted many countries to design, build and implement rail systems Cross border traffic into France, Poland, Austria, etc. DB have experience running networks in many countries together with local operators Local Commitment in California Sacramento Factory

14 We are a USA Team with a strong base in Sacramento and a commitment to California
Siemens USA has 70,000 employees, 5,400 in California (1,000 in Sacramento) Siemens is a local manufacturer of rail vehicles with a 25-year history in CA DB brings in a vast international operator‘s experience to set-up a California high speed rail network DB (Schenker) employs over 6,000 people in the USA (HQ in Irvine) We are part of the California society Education Construction Operation Job Creation Engine Industry Tourism DB Schenker USA Established in the U.S.A. in 1947 Over 6,000 employees 2 billion € revenue in USA Over 140 owned branches Integrated North American Forwarder Domestic Air and Ground Fleet 20 dedicated aircraft 1300 ground vehicles Over 1.1 million sq.m logistics warehouse space Railway stations Regional development Service Together we are forming a team with local operators and U.S. civil partners

15 We are a reliable and flexible Partner for California
Project Scope Expertise High Speed Rail Operator Regional and Metro Operator Network Operator Engineering and Consulting Consult and Design Build and System Integration Project Scope + Finance Operate and Maintain Rolling Stock Signaling and Electrification Local Manufacturing in California Turnkey Expertise incl. PPP "Best fit" and flexible Partnering for California Project possible

16 Our recommendations for High Speed Rail California
Our experience can be transferred to HSR California Decide on a "best-fit" project model and structure Start with a system that guarantees sufficient ridership to ensure early success Continue with a step by step expansion plan to reach an integrated intermodal system Engage industry partners early to ensure experience and technology transfer



19 We are committed to supporting California on its way towards a leading position in High Speed Rail
We give our Commitment ... … to form a strong USA High Speed Rail Team … to transfer innovative High Speed Rail Technology … to bring in our Operations and Service Know-How … to create sustainable and environmentally friendly solutions … to generate CA Jobs and to live Social Responsibility
