Eindhoven Airport bets on solar
The installation project for over 1000 photovoltaic panels is underway
The management company of the Dutch Eindhoven airport has started a project to install over 1000 additional solar panels on the roof of the terminal. This is an initiative that falls within the framework of interventions on sustainability and renewable energy envisaged by the decarbonisation plan which aims to power the terminal's operations in a clean way.
The project calls for the installation of 1068 photovoltaic panels by June 2023, which will bring the total installed to 1708. According to estimates, this will increase the amount of self-produced electricity from 200,000 kWh per year to around 590,000 kWh per year.
The airport sustainability energy plan also provides 76 solar panels will be installed on the roof of the general aviation terminal and on the Business terminal that by the end of 2023, capable of generating approximately 27,500 kWh of energy per year. Finally, further 845 panels will be installed on the roof of the air terminal capable of generating 230,000 kWh of self-produced energy per year.
