Hydrogen as Alternative Energy for Sustainable Aviation


This paper traces the historical growth and future of the aviation and aerospace industry. It examines how
hydrogen can be used in the air and on the ground to lower the aviation industry’s impact on the
environment. In addition, while aircraft are an essential part of the aviation industry, other support
services add to the overall impact on the environment. Hydrogen can be used to fuel the energy needs of
these services. However, for hydrogen technology to be accepted and implemented, other issues such as
government policy, education, and employability must be addressed. Improvement in the performance
and emissions of hydrogen as an alternative energy and fuel has grown in the last decade. However, other
issues such as the storage and cost and the entire value chain require significant work for hydrogen to be
implemented. The international community’s alternative renewable energy and hydrogen roadmaps can
provide a long-term blueprint for developing the alternative energy industry. This will inform the private
and public sectors so that the industry can adjust its plan accordingly
