Hydrogen as an energy source will play a key role in transforming aviation into a zero carbon/climate-neutral system over the next few decades.
Novel and disruptive aircraft, aero-engine and systems innovations in combination with hydrogen technologies can help to reduce the global warming effect of flying by 50 to 90%.
Moreover, these innovations can help to meet the drastic reduction targets for aviation emissions set out in the EU Green Deal.
A new independent study, commissioned by Clean Sky 2 and Fuel Cells & Hydrogen 2 Joint Undertakings on hydrogen’s potential for use in aviation, was presented at an online event yesterday, which featured Adina-Ioana Vălean, the European Commissioner for Transport, and Patrick Child, Deputy Director-General of the Directorate-General for Research and Innovation at the European Commission, as keynote speakers.
