According to a new study conducted at Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg by Dr Thomas Kirschstein, drones consume comparatively high amounts of energy in densely populated areas, and their range is strongly influenced by wind conditions. In rural areas, however, they may be able to compete with diesel-powered delivery vans. The study has been published in the journal “Transportation Research Part D: Transport and Environment”.Continue reading “Is urban drone delivery energy efficient?”
