Networking and communication

Network of interested actors

CENA is building a network of interested stakeholders, which aims to create synergies and realize effective projects. We act as an expert and mediator for political and economic discussions. To this end, we continuously organize expert workshops, symposia, and networking events where we bring together business, research, politics, and associations to discuss topics such as biomass-based aviation fuels or financing the market ramp-up of SAF.

Providing knowledge and information

An important goal of the Competence Center is to provide knowledge and information about sustainable air transport projects and ideas. CENA publishes studies, articles and summaries on these topics. In April 2023, a study was conducted and published with the collection of the current status on PtL: Overview and outlook regarding technologies for Power-to-Liquid production 2023. January 2023 also saw the publication of the study CO2-neutral aviation: an innovative government instrument for the market ramp-up of Power-to-Liquid (PtL).

Consulting and committees

We contribute our expertise to relevant bodies at state, federal and EU level and advise companies, associations as well as politicians and administrators, e.g. with statements on current legislative proposals.

CENA is a member of the Alliance for Zero-Emission Aviation (AZEA) and is represented there in various working groups. AZEA is an initiative of the European Commission with the aim of supporting the market entry of hydrogen and battery-powered aircrafts. Members include representatives from industry, research and the public sector.

CENA is also active in the Renewable and Low-Carbon Fuels Value Chain Industrial Alliance (RLCF). The initiative is a flanking measure under RefuelEU Aviation and focuses on promoting the production and supply of renewable and low-carbon fuels in the aviation sector.
