THRUST Impact Model

Conventional fuels and fossil-fuel free alternatives are not yet competitive on a cost basis. Taking into account however the wider societal impact as well as future regulations and technological developments, they will become competitive on certain routes sooner than you may think. The THRUST Impact Model allows for a comparison between renewable, alternative and fossil …
