Renewable energy is being pursued by various sectors. This SkyTalk will provide an overlook on the development and deployment of renewable energy sources for aviation, in support of the ICAO Environmental Goals and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This SkyTalk will focus on the various processes and feedstocks available for the production of Sustainable Aviation Fuels
The ICAO Vision for Sustainable Aviation Fuels (SAF) calls for a significant proportion of aviation fuels to be substituted with SAF by 2050. To achieve this scenario, ICAO organizes regular seminars to assess and quantify global progress on SAF development and deployment. The results of this SAF stocktaking process will lay down the basis for the third ICAO Conference on Aviation Alternative Fuels in 2025.
Looking to the future, this SkyTalk will provide a prospect on the use of electricity and hydrogen as renewable energy sources for aircraft operations and at airports.
