EBC Renewable Energy Committee Meeting: Briefing on Renewable Energy at Airports
December 2, 2014 @ 12:30 pm - 2:30 pm
Topic: Briefing on Renewable Energy at Airports
Speaker: Steve Barrett, Chair of EBC Renewable Energy Committee
Director Clean Energy at HMMH
Over the past 10 years, airports around the world have been actively participating in the clean energy revolution as a result of several important drivers. First, airports have buildings and land suitable for renewable energy projects, particularly solar, and also have energy demand to consume the output without the cost of grid transactions. Second, airports are part of government institution that have established public policy goals associated with climate change and renewable energy, and locating renewables on airport property achieves progress toward reaching those goals. Finally, Hurricanes Katrina and Sandy, airports recognize that on-site renewable energy generation is an essential part of the airport’s long-term contingency program. Steve Barrett has been working with airports and energy developers across the country on research, policy, and project assessment in this niche area and will share his experience.
