Energy Efficiency in Air Transportation explores all the relevant aspects in the relationship between air transportation and the use of energy, starting by an analysis of the air transport energy sources and their future potential development. It then goes on to study the way in which the different elements of the air transport system make use of the energy, with an analysis of the different ways of optimizing the energy consumption. The last part covers the consequences of this energy use, in terms of economics, environmental impact and sustainable development, with a review of the existing and proposed regulatory measures addressing those aspects. Aeronautical and air transport engineers interested in aerial vehicle and its systems design, as well as public administrations and regulators concerned with energy efficiency or environmental issues in air transport will benefit greatly from a comprehensive reference that captures the necessary background information, together with the newest developments in the field. Examines new developments in the field of the energy efficiency of air transport and their environmental impact efficiency certification Includes exergy analyses of aerial vehicles and systems Shows the environmental impact from fuel use including local air quality, consumption of non-renewable materials and contribution to climate change Discusses the CO2 emissions certification required by ICAO for new aircraft models
