Fifteen successful projects have been awarded funding to help support UK airports in handling new types of electric and hydrogen aircraft.
Winning projects include wireless charging for electric planes, swappable battery packs to keep flight turnover times to a minimum and state-of-the-art fuelling tanks to safely and efficiently refuel flights of the future.
The 15 successful projects have been awarded a share of over £700,000 to help bring forward innovative research and technology, which can support UK airports in handling new types of electric and hydrogen aircraft.
Transport Secretary Grant Shapps said: “As the world reopens from the pandemic, it is essential that we are investing in greener aviation as part of our transport decarbonisation agenda.
“Funding these revolutionary projects will help to slash carbon, create jobs and get us closer to our goal of operating zero emission flights.”
