The Energy Imperative
13 August, 1600–1800 hrs
Rising fuel costs and price volatility have dramatic implications for both commercial and military aviation. Experimentation with alternative fuels to hedge against price increases and availability issues in the long term has become a high-profile subject. This session will focus on the following topics:
- What is the future of alternative fuels and propulsion?
- What global trends in energy will impact the aerospace industry?
- To what extent can alternative fuel sources achieve cost reductions or reduce price volatility?
- Are defense aviation and commercial aviation competitors or partners – or both – for alternative fuels?
