The C3 Take
  • As the world looks to slash emissions, startups across the country are developing innovative technologies.
  • One such startup is ZeroAvia, which is looking to make air travel fully electric by pairing batteries and hydrogen-powered fuel cells together.
  • This pairing will make aircrafts not only less carbon-intensive, but lighter as well. A feature that allow for longer flights.
  • Innovation and entrepreneurs are creating a more clean future.

“ZeroAvia, which launched in 2017, has R&D sites in Hollister, Calif. and Cotswold Airport in the United Kingdom. It conducted its first commercial-scale electric- and hydrogen-powered flight tests in 2020 in England with a six-passenger plane. In the coming weeks, Miftakhov said the company will be testing a 20-seat plane in the U.K., and later in California.”
