It is also another demonstration of Rolls-Royce’s role in delivering solutions. They enable passengers to travel sustainably and will help ensure net zero carbon emissions by 2050 ”.
The benefits of using a hydrogen fuel cell system in a fully electric overhead drive system. They consist in the fact that it is a zero-emission on-board energy source. It is quiet and reliable, allows for scalability of the power offer and flight range over long distances.
Hyundai partners with Rolls-Royce to bring hydrogen fuel cells. Storage systems and infrastructure in aerospace markets and to advance this technology in Hyundai’s RAM vehicles and Rolls-Royce’s all-electric and hybrid power systems.
Most importantly, last year Rolls-Royce announced a path to net zero carbon emissions. Its electrical technology is one of the ways the company is contributing to the decarbonisation of critical parts of the global economy. Rolls-Royce is committed to ensuring that its new products are compatible with net zero carbon emissions operations. By 2030 and that all its products are compatible with net zero carbon emissions by 2050.
Earlier this year Hyundai Motor Group announces its AAM corporate roadmap. This includes the UAM and RAM segments to offer air mobility solutions. This eco-friendly for people within and between cities. Hyundai Motor Group’s US-based Supernal unit aims to begin commercial services. UAM operations in the United States in 2028, while Hyundai Motor Group plans to launch RAM services in the decade 2030.
