European Commission: Launch of the Alliance for Zero Emission Aviation

Zero-Emission Aviation

On 24 June 2022 the European Commission has launched the 'Alliance for Zero Emission Aviation'. The Alliance aims to prepare the aviation ecosystem for the entry into service of hydrogen- and electric-powered aircraft, to ensure that air transport contributes to Europe's 2050 climate neutrality objective.

It will gather representatives of aircraft manufacturers, airlines, airports, energy companies and fuel providers, standardisation and certification agencies, passenger and environmental interest groups, research organisations and regulators.

Private and public entities committed to supporting the entry-into-service of zero emission aircraft are invited to join the Alliance for Zero Emission Aviation by completing an online form. A first meeting of the general assembly will take place in autumn this year.
 
Under Horizon Europe, the Commission together with industry is investing EUR 1.7 billion in research and innovation activities for climate-neutral aviation in the Clean Aviation partnership. Building on previous EU research and innovation partnerships, the Clean Aviation Partnership aims to have zero emission technologies ready by 2027-2029 in order to have zero emission aircraft ready for entry into service by 2035.
