Rolls-Royce wants to build the first electrically powered passenger aircraft engines
Rolls-Royce is looking for a start-up technology company to build & # 39; the world's first electrically powered passenger aircraft engines.
The space giant makes engines for large aircraft and military aircraft.
But it is involved in three small projects and looks at hybrid and fully electrical design options for larger jets.
Chief executive Warren East told the Mail that it could make small, targeted investments. He added: & # 39; That could mean taking an interest or acquisition if the opportunity was sufficiently attractive. & # 39;
Making zero-emission engines for aircraft is difficult because batteries are still very heavy and do not become lighter during a flight like fuel does.
