AFC Energy has joined forces with Urban-Air Port to supply hydrogen fuel cells for what is claimed to be the world’s first electric urban airport.

Urban-Air Port looks to design transport hubs that have zero-emission planes and electric vehicles (EVs) and will unveil its first operational site in Coventry at the start of 2022.

The airport will be called ‘Air One’ and AFC Energy will provide the hydrogen fuel system.

Alongside this venture, Urban-Air Port has partnered with the Hyundai Motor Group to develop 65 electric urban airports worldwide to cater for the growing market demand for e-Mobility technology.

Ricky Sandhu, Founder of Urban-Air Port, said: “Zero emission, off-grid power is a critical component of our offering at Urban-Air Port and AFC Energy are the perfect partner to provide that capability with their world leading Hydrogen Fuel Cell technology.

“We’re delighted to have them at Air One and eagerly anticipate expanding the partnership to deliver clean, green, off-grid power to the future of air mobility.”
