Solar panels installed at Schiphol

Amsterdam Airport Schiphol and Imtech have installed 9,500m2 of solar panels at Schiphol-Northwest as part of a trial to determine whether the generation of large-scale cost-effective solar energy has a future at the Dutch airport.

The pilot project was developed by Schiphol initiative theGROUNDS, which combines new technologies with inventive business models, and the solar panels were contructed by Imtech.

The newly installed solar panels will yield 440,000 kWh of green energy each year, which is equivalent to the amount of electricity 120 households consume on average on an annual basis.

The airport has also introduced a number of other green initiatives aimed at developing a responsible, economic and efficient energy management programme that enables Schiphol to generate 20% of its own energy by 2020.

In addition to energy generation, Schiphol is working hard to reduce its energy consumption wherever possible. For example, a portion of the airport's parking facilities and the terminal building are now illuminated using LED lighting and the airport also uses thermal storage technology.
