The Government has produced a new 10-point plan, “for a Green Industrial Revolution – Building back better, supporting green jobs, and accelerating our path to net zero.” Much is aimed at creating new jobs in new sectors.  There is little about aviation, and nothing of much substance, except hopes for “sustainable aviation fuels” (SAF) for future use.  It says government will put £15m into FlyZero – a 12-month study, delivered through the Aerospace Technology Institute (ATI), into the strategic, technical and commercial issues in designing and developing zero-emission aircraft that could enter service in 2030. Also a £15m competition to support Sustainable Aviation Fuels production. They will establish a Sustainable Aviation Fuels clearing house to enable the UK to certify new fuels, driving innovation in this space. There will be a consultation in 2021 on a Sustainable Aviation Fuel mandate to blend “greener” fuels into kerosene, which will create a market-led demand for these alternative fuels.  The mandate would start in 2025. Government will invest in R&D for the infrastructure upgrades required at UK airports to move to battery and hydrogen aircraft. And there will be a consultation on an Aviation Decarbonisation Strategy in 2021. .Tweet   “Green Industrial Revolution – Building back better, supporting green jobs, and accelerating our path to net zero” 18.11.2020   – Government announcement The Prime Minister’s 10 point plan is now available here: https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/936511/10_POINT_PLAN_BOOKLET.pdf These are the 10 points: Point 1.  Advancing Offshore Wind Point 2.  Driving the Growth of Low Carbon Hydrogen Point 3.  Delivering New and Advanced Nuclear Power Point 4.  Accelerating the Shift to Zero Emission Vehicles Point 5.  Green Public Transport, Cycling and Walking Point 6.  Jet Zero and Green Ships Point 7.  Greener Buildings Point 8.  Investing in Carbon Capture, Usage and Storage Point 9.  Protecting Our Natural Environment Point 10.  Green Finance and Innovation Key aviation commitments: 1) £15m into FlyZero – a 12-month study, delivered through the Aerospace Technology Institute (ATI), into the strategic, technical a
