Acting now for the zero-emission planes and ships of tomorrow

Will we ever fly on electric or hydrogen commercial planes? What does a zero-emission ship look like?

Will we ever fly on electric or hydrogen commercial planes? Can we count on sustainable fuels for climate neutral flying? What does a zero-emission ship look like?

This online event brought industry and policy makers face-to-face, in an e-forum to exchange on how they plan to make zero-emission mobility tomorrow’s reality.

T&E’s shipping and aviation teams offered a unique opportunity for innovating companies and policy-makers to meet and debate. Companies such as Airbus, ZeroAvia, Wright Electric, Pipistrel and MAN ES presented their technological breakthroughs to European decision-makers. Face-to-face interaction was possible in the several breakout sessions, to discuss the latest technologies in shipping and aviation, their potential and what steps are needed by policy makers to drive their uptake.
