Rolls-Royce Launches Power Lab to Drive Future Technologies

August 28th, 2020 | by Press Release

Rolls-Royce with its Power Systems business has set up a new organizational unit "Power Lab" to focus on innovative and net zero carbon drive and energy solutions. The Power Lab will concentrate on the development of cutting-edge technologies for the marine and infrastructure sectors, with a strong emphasis on fuel cell systems and the production and deployment of synthetic fuels


Bye Aerospace & OXIS Energy To Commercialize Lithium-Sulfur Batteries For Urban Air Mobility (UAM)

August 17th, 2019 | by Nicolas Zart

Bye Aerospace is an extremely busy electric aviation company developing the future of our urban air mobility (UAM) world. It has two electric airplanes (eCTOL) and is working on an electric vertical take-off & landing (eVTOL) project with Uber Elevate. But that's not all. It is also partnering with another two companies focusing on pre‐crash sensing technologies, parachute ballistic recovery systems, landing gear‐airframe crashworthy structural concepts, high-energy absorbing seats, and advanced restraints


Air Race E (Electric Airplane Race) Launching In 2020

April 13th, 2019 | by Nicolas Zart

What a wild first year it's been for the highly entertaining electric Air Race E, which is gearing up for its first year of races — targeted for 2020. My last conversation with Jeff Zaltman, Air Race E's CEO, showed me that the group is about as dynamic as its airplanes maneuvering in the sky


eVTOL Aircraft Are Getting Closer To Flying You Than You Can Imagine

February 9th, 2019 | by Nicolas Zart

I'm always surprised talking about electric vertical take-off & landing (eVTOL) aircraft technology at a party. Most people think electric urban air mobility (eUAM) won't happen for a decade. Apart from the sad fact I talk about such things at parties, their reaction is puzzling. While most people think eVTOL aircraft won't happen for a long time, that is a serious underestimation. Many aviation heavy-hitters and startups are already testing them. Heck, you can even buy one now


Rolls-Royce Racing To Build World’s Fastest Electric Airplane

January 16th, 2019 | by Nicolas Zart

Rolls-Royce is well-known for its plush cars with infinite refinements. It is not generally known for its electric ventures. The company has dipped its fingers in autonomous electric ferries, as well as an electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft concept. So why not the world's fastest electric airplane


Airbus, Siemens, & Rolls-Royce Collaborating To Develop Hybrid Electric Engine (E-Fan X Program)

November 28th, 2017 | by James Ayre

Three of the top aviation engine engineering firms in the world — Airbus, Siemens, and Rolls-Royce — are now collaborating on the development of a hybrid electric aircraft engine, the companies have jointly revealed. The new program — which has been dubbed E-Fan X — comes as competition in the sector to be the first to market with an electrified plane has begun intensifying. The new collaboration aims to fly a demonstrator aircraft in 2020 after ground tests have concluded
