Ricardo is part of a seven-strong UK consortium of innovation partners from industry and academia developing a next generation, integrated propulsion module with zero tailpipe emissions to enhance aircraft performance, while reducing operating costs.

UK Consortium Launches Project to Propel Next Generation of Electric Aircraft

With the other consortium members, Ricardo will work on a two-year project which is supported and co-funded by the UK’s Aerospace Technology Institute and Innovate UK. The project will deliver a highly power-dense, quiet and efficient propulsion module with zero tailpipe emissions.

Ricardo Head of R&D Richard Gordon said: “Ricardo’s expert engineers excel at bringing together novel, complex, clean propulsion and energy solutions, taking a whole lifecycle carbon neutral approach to minimise environmental impact. We are delighted to have been confirmed as a member of the consortium, and to be able to apply existing innovative Ricardo research deliverables to this exciting application.

Ricardo is expanding its efforts to apply its world-leading technology solutions honed in the automotive and industrial sectors to the aviation sector where there is a real need for proven technologies which can improve efficiency and performance as OEMs endeavour to work towards net zero emissions.”
