AFC Energy hydrogen technology to power electric vertical take-off and landing airport in the UK

UK start-up Urban-Air Port today (Sep 16) unveiled plans to develop 65 electric urban airports worldwide to meet growing demand for e-mobility in the aviation sector – and the first site in Coventry, UK is set to be powered by hydrogen.

Working in partnership with Hyundai Motor Group’s Urban Air Mobility Division, the two companies will establish a global network of urban airports and provide the essential infrastructure to unlock clean urban air mobility worldwide.

AFC Energy said it will lease a zero-emission hydrogen generator to Urban Air-Port for the first site in Coventry, dubbed Air-One, to support the power needs of vehicle charging infrastructure.

Air-One, expected to open in 2022, will be the first of 200 sites Urban-Air Port wants to develop in the next five years.
