FlightLab: Readiness of SAF, electric and hydrogen infrastructure 12 June 2023 1330 - 1430

When talking about sustainable aviation, we tend to focus on the development of the technology and say that the infrastructure development is challenging because it is an "egg and chicken" scenario. Yet, we need to have some level of infrastructure ready to support the aircraft when they enter the market. Therefore, we must understand the level of infrastructure needed when the aircraft enter the market and also further down the road.   This debate will look at the level of infrastructure required to support sustainable aviation in the near term and how to futureproof it. When talking about looking at the infrastructure required, we can leverage the learnings we have had with other industries. While from an engineering perspective, all three infrastructures can be delivered, we must understand how they can become economically feasible and make sense in terms of energy intensity/requirements.
