Embraer´s Eve Urban Air Mobility Solutions (Eve) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Brazilian operation of EDP, a multinational energy leader, to collaborate on Urban Air Mobility (UAM). Both companies will cooperate on the research of operational models for charging infrastructure solutions needed for electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft to begin operations.

Some of the subjects covered in the collaborative research will be the evolution of battery technology and charging systems, management of charging points, and payment systems. Together, the companies will evaluate the development of a viable UAM energy infrastructure following the analysis results.

“Our collaboration with EDP is an important building block for Eve as we work to bring our zero-emission eVTOL to market. Energy analysis and infrastructure solutions are incredibly important in contributing to carbon reduction and ensuring we are meeting industry goals. For us at Eve, this is the next step in preparing the UAM ecosystem for the future of urban flight,” said Andre Stein, President & CEO of Eve.
