Plug Power Inc. said it would work with Airbus to study the feasibility of bringing green hydrogen to future aircraft and airports.

Airbus and Plug Power will work on a joint study and roadmap that could bring green hydrogen to aircraft and airports, Plug Power said.

Plug Power shares rose 7% to $31.90 premarket.

Plug Power will create deployment scenarios for green hydrogen infrastructure at airports, while Airbus will offer insight on hydrogen aircraft characteristics.

Plug Power and Airbus will select a U.S. airport to serve as the first "Hydrogen Hub" pilot airport in North America, serving as a case study for hydrogen infrastructure scale-up at other airports.

The companies will also consider setting up a range of joint projects covering the deployment of green hydrogen infrastructure for aviation, at scale.

Airbus hopes to bring zero-emission aircraft to market by 2035.

"We at Airbus see huge potential for green hydrogen to power our future zero-emission aircraft," said Glenn Llewellyn, Airbus vice-president for zero-emission aircraft.
