The session will feature trends in sustainable propulsion in the aeronautical sector. Different sustainable propulsion technologies, such as electric propulsion, hybrid propulsion and hydrogen propulsion, will be addressed and their advantages and disadvantages in relation to traditional propulsion systems will be discussed.
The lecture will also focus on discussing the challenges and difficulties to the implementation of sustainable propulsion systems in the aeronautical sector, such as costs, infrastructure and safety, and will present examples of how these challenges are being addressed in the industry.
