Prof. Lorenzo Trainelli in this video takes us to travel into the future of electric propulsion. Among the limitations and challenges of this technology, which is already a reality in aeronautics, he suggests what the new winning propulsive architectures could be in terms of autonomy and sustainability. Between batteries, fuel cells, electric motors, management and production of hydrogen in the coming years, says the professor, a revolution in air mobility awaits us that will radically change the environmental impact in the way people and goods are transported and the quality of our life.
The question of this episode is: Electric propulsion in aeronautics: where are we?
