Rolls-Royce, british luxury car maker, is expected to implement a project called ACCEL Gianshort next year. This project is aimed at launching aircraft without emissions and has a speed of 300 miles per hour. It operates entirely by electricity, without emissions. This can be considered a major breakthrough for eco-friendly tourism.

A new record?
In 2017 and earlier, a Siemens aircraft set a speed record for its speed of 210 miles per hour.
Although this process is still incomplete, ACCEL aircraft may lay the foundations for emissions-free aviation industry in the future. But at the present, ACCEL has set the current speed record for an all-electric plane and it has become the World’s Fastest Electric Plane. 300 miles per hour will be a significant improvement in zero-day aviation emissions.
Matheu Parr, project head, said that this plane would be powered by a state-of-the-art electrical system and the most powerful battery ever built for flight.
Climate Crisis and new hope
At the present, the aviation industry is looking for ways to neutralize its negative environmental impacts. Both Governments and the private sector seek to deal with climate challenges. The project came about in the context of aviation being responsible for the release of 850 million tons of carbon dioxide last year, around 2% of the total anthropogenic emissions.
Rolls-Royce is confident that they will become a pioneer and a leader in green aviation with the ACCEL project. In addition, initiatives from other manufacturing and engineering organizations will be piloted in the coming years.
