University of Cambridge – path to net zero flight

The University of Cambridge is launching the Aviation Impact Accelerator (AIA) at COP26 – an international group of experts in aerospace, economics, policy, and climate science, who are building an interactive evidence-based simulator to allow exploration of scenarios for achieving net zero flight. This will capture the whole aviation sector, from sources of renewable electricity and raw materials to the production and transport of fuel, and the introduction of new aircraft technologies and operations. Leaders in industry and government will gain an understanding of the potential for change and the trade-offs between decisions. The simulator is intended to guide innovation, investment, and policy action, as well as providing wider educational benefits to the public.
