“Energia Family” is made up of four concept aircraft of different sizes and with different propulsion technologies:
Electric energy: it proposes zero CO2 emissions.
Hydrogen fuel cell: it proposes zero CO2 emissions.
Dual fuel gas turbine: proposes up to 100% reduction in CO2 emissions
Hybrid-electric: proposes up to 90% reduction in CO2 emissions.
“Our role is to develop innovative technologies to help the industry achieve its sustainability goals … That is why our Energía family is such an important platform,” said Luis Carlos Affonso, Senior Vice President of Engineering, Technology, and Corporate Strategy at Embraer.
