International Conference On Electric Airships - Decarbonizing Aviation

28.09.2023 – 29.09.2023
Jetzt anmelden / Register

Flexible thin-film solar cells, highly efficient power electronics, and lightweight batteries enable the construction of a new generation of airships. This includes drones, high altitude airships, and airships for cargo and passenger transport. In particular, airships can be used in the future for:

  • transport to remote areas
  • sustainable cargo transport
  • transport of heavy loads
  • sustainable passenger transport
  • monitoring and surveillance of e.g. pipelines, high power transmission lines
  • provision of telecom and internet connections
  • tourism transport, recreation, and sightseeing
  • humanitarian aid, disaster relief
