Norway is famous for its environment-friendly initiatives and the latest one to join the list is the country’s plan to switch to electric planes in an effort to slow down climate change. The country already has world’s highest per capita number of electric cars.
State-owned Avinor, which operates most of the country’s airports, plans to adopt battery-powered planes in the coming years to help slow climate change.
“In my mind, there’s no doubt that by 2040 Norway will be operating totally electric” on short-haul flights, Dag Falk-Pedersen, head of Avinor, said at an aviation conference in Oslo. The country aims to be the first in the world to switch to electric air transport.
The long-held dream of electric airliners has been stymied by battery technology and limited range. However, the aviation industry is stepping up to make this dream a reality.
