Event Details

Bringing aviation on a path to net-zero emissions by 2050 requires a doubling of historical fuel efficiency gains of aircraft, a rapid roll-out of Sustainable Aviation Fuels (SAFs), and the market entry of novel propulsion aircraft in the mid-2030s (Mission Possible Partnership, 2022).

AAIS, together with Boeing and the Singapore Energy Centre are proud to present this workshop centered around the theme of sustainable aviation. Join experts from the aviation industry, public sector, and academia to discuss efforts and challenges of decarbonizing aviation, including future aircraft concepts, renewable energies, and other technological innovations.

Participate in this in-person event and take the opportunity to interact with distinguished speakers, connect and establish contacts with industry and academic experts for further discussions, collaboration, or future consultations.
