star star

'Time points' are awarded according to the adequacy of the solution with the type of innovations sought by Time for the Planet. They correspond to the analysis of several factors :

  • impact potential: impact average score > 4 => 0,5 point / if > 4,15 => 1 point.
  • global consistency: all average score of the 6 selection criteria > 2,5 => 1 point.
  • the favourite: % of assessments judge the innovation as a top one to act on a global scale against greenhouse gases > 20% => 1 point
  • the targeting: validation of Time for the Planet scope of action higher than 90% => 0,5 point + innovation level of maturity is enough => 0,5 point
  • social acceptability: semantic analysis score of comments > 0 => 0,5 point/ if > 3500 => 1 point
20 assessments

Submitted to evaluations : After checking that an innovation is within the scope of the 20 issues Time for the Planet targets and that it has reached a sufficient maturity, the innovation is being assessed.

Detailed project

NB: this form is filled entirely by the ones submitting the innovation.

What is the issue addressed?

Aviation is by far the hardest industry to reduce emissions. Electric flight is soon possible, but the industries business models are not suitable for it. The plan proposes to introduce a new business model that will make electric flight readily useable and enable the first true zero-emission flight

How is the problem solved?

We start by offering a digital product that focuses on A-B mobility by air travel, in the niche where electric zero-emissions becomes available in 2025. By opening this market and competing with classic alternatives, electric flight can be used and scaled right from the moment it becomes available

What is the customer target?

consumers and corporate frequent fliers

How is this solution different?

Aviation industry will only adopt low-emission solutions that can serve planes at the scale they are currently operating (150+ passengers). Such solutions will take 30 more years to develop. By changing the business model to accomodate for smaller units, we can make a faster start by allowing zero-emission on short distances in 5 years.
