New fuels and technologies will account for between one half and three-quarters of the reduction of carbon emissions in aviation by 2050.
Global sustainable development consultancy Arup and gas distribution network Wales and West Utilities (WWU) have today launched a new report assessing demand for hydrogen across the aviation supply chain.
‘Hydrogen in Aviation’ takes a closer look at the future demand for hydrogen across South Wales and South West England across four key airports in the region - Bristol Airport, Cardiff Airport, Exeter Airport and Cornwall Airport Newquay. The report analyses potential use of hydrogen for future flight, its use at airports, and its role in Sustainable Aviation Fuels (SAF) from 2023 to 2050. Demand assessment is vital in aligning the hydrogen supply chain for the region, helping potential suppliers inform business plans and collaboration decisions, as well as to understand where and when pipelines may be required in the future.
