With its Stingray-esque figure and wings that merge into its body, the Airbus ZEROe concept airplane is a sleek, white vision of the future. The plane-maker hopes the hydrogen-fuelled model could be in the sky within 15 years, carrying up to 200 passengers as the “world’s first” zero emissions plane. “This is a historic moment for the commercial aviation sector,” Guillaume Faury, Airbus’s chief executive, proclaimed as he unveiled the model in September, adding he “strongly believed” in the potential of hydrogen to cut carbon emissions. He is not the only one putting his faith in the clean-burning gas. Industrialists, engineers and politicians are looking to hydrogen to help as the pressure to meet Paris climate goals intensifies. Germany plans to invest €9bn [£8bn] towards generating hydrogen from renewable power, while analysts believe the global market could be worth $2.5trn [£1.9trn] by 2050.
