Boeing Team Designs SUGAR Volt Aircraft that Burn 70% Less Fuel | Inhabitat - Green Design Will Save the World
Boeing Team Designs SUGAR Volt Aircraft that Burn 70% Less Fuel | Inhabitat - Green Design Will Save the World: "The N 3 program told MIT, GE Aviation, Northrop Grumman, Boeing and their teammates to look into the future of air travel. Each team has been given either the task of looking at subsonic or supersonic commercial air travel�(yes, we’re stoked about�supersonic commercial flights in the future too) and Boeing was given the task of looking at both. Their SUGAR Volt concept decreases aircraft fuel burn by more than 70 percent and total energy use by 55 percent — partially by “greening” the plane’s electrical grid — while reducing emissions heavily over the life of the craft."
