Embraer announces Energia family of Aircrafts

Updated: Nov 11

Aircraft Manufacturer Embraer in partnership with an international consortium of engineering universities, aeronautical institutes and research centers has unveiled a family of concept aircrafts exploring to achieve its industry goal of net zero carbon emissions by 2050.

The Energia family, the latest in the company’s Sustainability in Action initiative, was recently announced from Embraer’s manufacturing facility in São José dos Campos, Brazil.


The company is said to be doing its part in the industry-wide push to reduce carbon emissions and move toward sustainable types of aviation fuels across all sectors—business aircraft and larger, regional, and international passenger airliners. The global aviation industry currently produces about 2 percent of all human-generated carbon emissions, according to Air Transport Action Group.

The Energia family includes four concept aircraft of varying sizes that incorporate different propulsion technologies—electric, hybrid-electric, hydrogen fuel cell, and dual-fuel gas turbine. Dual-fuel gas turbine systems allow for the change from one fuel to another while the turbine is operating.


Energia Hybrid (E9-HE)

  • hybrid-electric propulsion

  • up to 90 percent CO2 emissions reduction

  • nine seats

  • rear-mounted engines
