easyJet, Rolls-Royce form H2ZERO to develop hydrogen engine technology for aircraft

easyJet and Rolls-Royce on Tuesday (July 19) announced the companies had formed the new partnership, H2ZERO, in a bid to develop hydrogen engine technology to power aircraft, including the narrow-body market.

The firms have committed to collaborating on a series of engine test on the ground in 2022 with ambitions of taking the technology to the air, in the hope of demonstrating that hydrogen has the potential to power future aircraft from the mid-2030s.

It is hoped the project will offer a space for easyJet and Rolls-Royce to support a concept ground test of a Rolls-Royce AE 2100 engine in the UK, with a follow-up full-scale ground test of a Rolls-Royce Pearl 15 jet engine potentially at the Rolls-Royce test facility in Mississippi, US.
