This paper present reducing the energy consumption of light rail train by using co2-operated ventilation for air-conditioning. To achieve this precious goal, this paper proposes the use of co2-operated ventilation in order to reduce the energy used for air-conditioning purpose. The energy of co2-operated air-conditions and CAV (convention system) was simulated and analyzed by HAP software. The result of train simulation report has shown clearly that co2-operated air condition consume less energy and is cost energy effective as compared to CAV( conventional system).
