When designing, Advanced Air Mobility systems we should conduct research on their environmental impacts to potentially minimize our carbon footprint during the manufacturing process, to consider any renewable energy source available to power our AAM systems, and to be mindful of any displacement/extinction of wildlife that may occur when setting up these systems.

Our Proposal explores the idea of using Lithium-Ion Batteries as a primary power source in Advanced Air Mobility Vehicles, instead of relying on traditional fossil fuel methods.


• "The negative environmental effects of batteries are reduced as the battery lifetime extends" - (Eckart, Jonathan)

• "Malfunction and damage are very rare, so lithium-ion battery technology is very safe to use. Especially if you avoid extreme heat and damaging the battery casing" - (Triggs, Robert)

• Lithium-Ion Batteries are Recyclable (Triggs,Robert)


• "Battery production causes more environmental damage than carbon emissions alone" - (Eckart, Jonathan)

• "Today’s lithium-ion battery market already uses over 40% of the world’s mined cobalt" - (Shunmugasundaram, Ramesh)

• Toxic gasses can be released from damaged Lithium Ion Batteries (Nedjalkov, Antonio)

Fundamentally, it is our hope that the path towards standardization would lead to savings for all commercial entities in the realms of development and production for AAM systems. We live in an age where innovation outpaces regulation, and as such, when burgeoning technologies are developed, disparate systems eventually inundate the market with excess and superfluousness. It is up to market providers and consumers to work together to create a functional and efficient marketplace. If this can be achieved, everyone benefits from a better technological ecosphere that is more cost effective and efficient.
