Air transportation/mobility has started transitioning to clean energy. In a few years, we will begin to travel in planes powered by either electric or hydrogen fuel. If you have been following AGREEN1 then you have heard about these electric aircraft before; however, unlike conventional planes, eVTOLs take off and land vertically. The first ones could launch as soon as 2025 if regulations permit.
But transportation experts say that eVTOLs will not replace conventional aircraft. Instead, they will solve challenges like completing last-mile delivery to rural places, transporting people and organs to hospitals, and avoiding traffic in metropolitan areas. If powered by renewable energy, they will cut aviation emissions by more than 50 percent. If we power eVTOLs and conventional planes with renewable energy, they will cut emissions by 88 percent.
