Conduct an energy audit: This can help airport operators understand the airport’s energy usage and become strategic about investing in energy-efficient technologies. Once operators understand the energy usage, then they can make sure that airport staff and management work towards supporting those goals.
Night-time shut down: For small to medium airports, a night-time shut down can help conserve airport energy. This means switching off most of the energy usage where it is safe and convenient to do so, such as switching off lighting, computers, and hospitality areas. However, this may not be possible if an airport conducts late-night flights. Instead, airports could close certain gates and lounges and only using a select few to reduce energy consumption.
Replacing conventional lighting systems with LEDs: LEDs require much less electricity to power than both traditional incandescent and halogen light bulbs, plus they last much longer.
Building insulation: Ensuring the airport has sufficient building insulation will help fight against heat loss which will help reduce airport energy bills. By insulating an airport, it limits the need for heating or cooling the building, reducing the costs of air conditioning.
