Electric & Hybrid Aerospace Technology Symposium

Now in its third year, the Symposium is a leading event for high level aerospace engineers, research academics and heads of electrical system design and engineering to discuss, debate and analyse the development of hybrid electric aircraft and even the possibility of electric-only commercial flight.

The two-day event will cover all aspects of aerospace activity, from general aviation and smaller regional aircraft, to larger commercial airliners, with its purpose being to highlight the fast-paced development of hybrid propulsion and electrical subsystem architecture or MEA, to discuss the vast research into the increased electrification of aircraft and the possibilities and challenges that brings experts from around the world will present their views and their current findings, providing a unique opportunity to exchange ideas and network with this pioneering community of aviation engineers.

There is a great deal to discuss. With the enormous pressure on all mankind to reduce dependence on natural resources, airlines are demanding ever more fuel-efficient aircraft to save costs. Furthermore, hybrid-electric aircraft could see near-silent commercial aviation activity, increasing passenger comfort and flight frequency. A quieter aircraft can operate over more territories, more of the time, leading to more air slots and less resistance to additional runways or night-time flights. It is little wonder that every major aircraft manufacturer is now investing heavily into developing electric aerospace propulsion technologies. Indeed, it is inevitable that we will see ever more start-up companies creating such innovative technologies, just as we have seen in the automotive and maritime industries.

The Electric & Hybrid Aerospace Technology Symposium papers will focus on, but not be limited to:

  • The possibilities created by aircraft hybridisation
  • Commercial aircraft application possibilities and research
  • Battery technologies
  • Electric motor technologies
  • Environmental impact Real-world fuel-saving possibilities
  • Energy-storage systems Solar possibilities
  • Efficiency and durability
  • Increasing flight range through hybridisation
  • The possibilities of pure electric-only commercial and military flight
  • Safety and legislative considerations
  • Case studies on existing global electric and hybrid research programmes
  • Overcoming engineering challenges
  • Best design practices
  • Investment possibilities
  • Additional advantages of increased electrification
  • Range-extender technologies
