Alliance on Zero Emission Aviation

Alliance on Zero Emission Aviation

7 September 2021: The European Commission has launched a consultation on the industry Alliance Zero Emission Aviation.

From start-ups to large OEM, the entire aeronautics supply chain is developing innovative technologies to support the greening of aviation. Some of the solutions under development involve technologies such as hydrogen, battery-electric or hybrid propulsion not previously used in aircraft. The commercial use of such new aircraft types will require an important adaptation of the entire aviation ecosystem.

In order to create the conditions for these aircraft to enter into service, the European Commission announced in its Communication on Updating the 2020 New Industrial Strategy, adopted on 5 May 2021, that it would consider preparing an Alliance Zero-Emission Aviation. The Communication "'Fit for 55': delivering the EU's 2030 Climate Target on the way to climate neutrality" notes that the Alliance will complement the Commission's efforts to introduce sustainable aviation fuels.

The purpose of the Alliance would be to identify and prioritise the challenges related to the entry into service of zero emission aircraft and ultimately to help implement practical solutions to these. The Alliance will need to mobilise interested stakeholders in all parts of the aeronautical industry - from large to small enterprises - and among other relevant actors - airports, airlines, services providers, air navigation service providers, research organisations and networks, national and regional authorities, etc.
