Towards greener aviation

The shift towards more electric aircraft driven by environmental awareness and emission regulations is a growing challenge that concerns every segment of the aircraft transport.

The first step towards more electric aircraft was taken through the electrification of non-propulsive systems thanks to the strong advances in power electronic devices, high efficiency power generators, advanced actuation systems, energy storage technologies, new manufacturing processes, new power generation and distribution architectures. However there is much more to do to challenge the power density and improve the reliability while taking the best of the intrinsic advantages of electrical technology. Latest developments on these issues will be presented during the conference.

New questions arise and many research programs are funded to study innovative propulsion concepts, all electric, hybrid or turboelectric, potentially distributed. The design of this future generation of more electric propulsion aircraft challenges not only structure and aerodynamics but also power distribution, energy storage, thermal management, reliability, certification and operations. All these topics will be addressed during the conference.

Following the successful European conference held in Toulouse in February 2019, the organizers of MEA2021 invite industry and research representatives to contribute to this new exciting edition in Bordeaux, and to share ideas, lessons learnt and solutions relating to technological developments as well as future concepts associated to more/all electrical aircraft. Transport aircraft, light aircraft, unmanned aircraft, fixed wing as well as rotorcraft, will be considered, either for commercial, military or private use.
