UK Government to aid hydrogen aircraft development with £3m ZEFI fund

The UK Government has today (June 30) unveiled the launch of a first round £3m ($4m) Zero Emission Flight Infrastructure (ZEFI) competition that will aid development of electric and hydrogen aircraft.

As part of the first round, the government will award businesses and universities around the UK up to £50,000 ($69,000) each to pioneer critical research into infrastructure, such as charge points and hydrogen refuelling tanks.

As part of the Prime Minister’s Ten Point Plan, the £3m ($4m) fund will ramp-up the move towards sustainable aviation to reach net zero by 2050.
