Environmentally-friendly electric power systems for the airline industry

Escalating concern over rising carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions is driving worldwide demand for pure electric vehicle (EV) and hybrid electric vehicles (HEV).

The airline industry is undergoing a similar evolution and a number of airline companies are working with Ampaire a leader in the field of aircraft electrification, to analyze the cost/performance benefits of electric-powered aviation. If air travel infrastructure costs can be driven down, it becomes feasible to expand air travel to underserviced and/or remote geographies with ubiquitous short-haul ‘air taxi’ services available across an increased number of regional airports and connection points.
