How Do We Pursue Our Green Energy Aims for Transport?

The SBI Group is delighted to present a discussion on the Hydrogen potential for inter-island flights and on-island transportation with a guest speaker streamed from ZeroAvia and an introduction from Deputy Sasha Kazantseva Miller of the Committee for Economic Development.

Join our next Sustainable Business Initiative event to explore how hydrogen fuel could have a role in making our island economy more sustainable. The future of hydrogen-fuelled transport and energy is closer than you might think and we are delighted to host Sergey Kiselev, Head of Europe for ZeroAvia, a leading innovator in decarbonising commercial aviation and other sectors. Sergey will be speaking to us via a livestream link to discuss how hydrogen engines could be powering us to Jersey, Alderney and beyond.

ZeroAvia aims to accelerate the world’s transition to sustainable avaiation and is focussed on enabling zero emission 500-mile short haul trips by using existing propeller aircraft whose conventional engines would be replaced by ZeroAvia’s zero emission aviation powertrains. This makes the CI an excellent place to consider the advantages of switching to hydrogen aviation fuel to supply faster, safer and cleaner travel.

ZeriAvia is already working with some major airlines and Sergey will consider the possibilities of hydrogen fuel-powered engines for Aurigny, the potential cost savings this would involve, the roadblocks to getting there, as well as the ecosystem that would be needed to support hydrogen aviation in Guernsey. Once this hydrogen ecosystem is in place, there would be possibilities for hydrogen automative and marine fuel. We look foward to hearing more about ZeroAvia’s journey and vision. After Sergey’s talk he will be remaining online to answer questions.

The talk will be introduced by Deputy Sasha Kazantseva-Miller, Lead on Digital, Skills and Entrepreneurship for the Committee for Economic Development (and co-founder of the Sustainable Business Initiative). The event is suitable for anyone interested in aviation, innovation, sustainable travel and sustainable energy.

Lunch will be provided. Please advise of any dietary requirements by emailing office@guernseychamber.com on purchase of your ticket. Tickets are free for members and £10 for non members.
