Aircraft Technology Net Zero Roadmap

June 3, 2023

Aircraft Technology Net Zero Roadmap
The Aircraft Technology Roadmap highlights requirements for aircraft to be powered by SAF or conventional aviation fuel, hydrogen, or batteries. Each track on the Technology Roadmap is dedicated to a specific type of energy and the technologies needed to enable its use.

The next generation mobile connectivity set to transform aviation

whitePaper | December 9, 2019

The world is flying more. In the next 20 years, the global fleet is expected to double to 48,000 aircraft, while annual passenger numbers are set to hit 7.2 billion. At the same time, passenger habits are changing quicker than anticipated. Not only are most of us glued to our smartphones and consuming an ever-greater volume of rich digital content, many of us are carrying around more than just one device. Add to this an explosion of Internet of Thing devices, from smartwatches to connected baggage aboard the aircraft, and demand for ‘always-on’ connectivity is becoming the norm

AVIATION CLIMATE FINANCE USING A GLOBAL FREQUENT FLYING LEVY

whitePaper | September 28, 2022

Aviation is often considered a “hard to abate” sector; it is growing rapidly but struggling to deploy low-carbon technologies due to their high costs. This paper presents a case under which progressive taxation, namely a frequent flying levy (FFL), can generate revenues for decarbonization while ensuring equitable distribution of the cost burden.

Target True Zero: Government Policy Toolkit to Accelerate Uptake of Electric and Hydrogen Aircraft

whitePaper | July 26, 2023

Last year, the assembly of the UN’s International Civil Aviation Organization agreed to set an aspirational goal of net-zero emissions by 2050, reinforcing targets and commitments made already by both industry and individual states for the sector. While net zero provides a common goal for aviation, it comes with a recognition that this sector is likely to be one of the hardest to abate. Most stakeholders agree that meeting this challenge will require a broad approach, encompassing both operational efficiencies and changing the ways we fuel flight.

A Roadmap Toward a Sustainable Aviation Ecosystem

whitePaper | August 31, 2022

This report outlines a holistic view of pathways to a sustainable aviation ecosystem, focusing on low-net-carbon aircraft energy carriers (fuels), airport ecosystems (airports and bases), and developments in sustainable aircraft components (aircraft). Taking this holistic ecosystem perspective, we identify critical components that contribute to sustainable energy solutions necessary to achieve deep decarbonization of the aviation industry, as well as the integrated energy system interfaces that must be comprehensively understood, planned for, and realized. Further, we outline necessary R&D needs to achieve sustainability across the aviation ecosystem, including advancing breakthrough innovations to rapidly achieve scalable solutions, with attention to their cross-sectoral dependencies and implications.
