Air Travel contributes 4% of global CO2 emissions and is projected to contribute 25% by 2050. Less than 1% of the population generates over 50% of these emissions. To address these negative, inequitable, and unsustainable impacts from aviation, ClearSkies was formed.
ClearSkies is a Public-Private Partnership (P3) developer of renewable solar energy infrastructure at regional and general aviation (GA) airports.
Integrating solar photovoltaics, SAF refining (ATJ-SKA), energy storage (hydrogen electrolyzer and fuel cells), and chargers to provide zero-emission power for the airport, electric passenger vehicles, ground support equipment, and aircraft. SAF will reduce emissions by 70% vs conventional jet fuel.
ClearSkies offers Gold Standard and CORSIA compliant carbon offsets through a trading desk to support growing Environmental, Social, & Governance (ESG) demands of Airports and Aviation.
Immediate positive economic impact for the airports and flight schools with increased revenue and reduced operating expenses. Integration of energy storage systems and charging infrastructure can be leveraged for airport resiliency and service flexibility. As fuel and maintenance cost fall, regional routes will increase (passenger & cargo). Positive environmental impact with reduced green house gas emissions and reduced noise. Positive social impact with diversify our energy supply, resiliency for our national infrastructure and bringing a variety of employment opportunities.
