Dubai Airport Moves Towards a Solar-Powered Future

by Traveleads | July 16, 2019 | In The Air Latest News

Dubai Airports and Etihad Energy Services Company have announced the successful installation of a solar energy system comprising 15,000 photovoltaic panels at Dubai International’s Terminal 2 – the largest at any airport in the region.

With the new solar energy system in place, the existing Terminal 2 load at Dubai Airport will be reduced by roughly 29% which will also slash annual Co2 emissions by 3,243 metric tonnes which is equivalent to 53,617 tree seedlings grown for ten years or 688 passenger vehicles driven for one year.

Dubai Airports Infrastructure and Business Technology executive vice-president Michael Ibbitson said: “Dubai Airports has undertaken a variety of green initiatives over the past several years to limit our carbon footprint and support Dubai’s goal for a 30% reduction in the city’s energy consumption by 2030.

“In addition to enabling us to limit our carbon footprint while cutting costs, these initiatives also support our long-term vision for a carbon-neutral future in line with the aviation industry’s target.”
