Solar capabilities more than tripled at Delhi Airport

Airport operator Delhi International Airport Limited (DIAL) has increased the solar power generation capabilities of Indira Gandhi International Airport in New Delhi from 2.14MW to 7.84MW, allowing the airport to be largely run on green power.

I Prabhakara Rao, CEO, DIAL, said, “At Delhi Airport we strongly believe that the collaborative approach is the key strategic element for combating climate change. As part of our extensive sustainability strategy, we have taken various efficiency measures at the airport. These include green initiatives such as LEED-NC Gold certification, solar power generation, successful registration on energy efficiency with the UNFCCC, Clean Development Mechanism, and water and waste management initiatives.”

DIAL, a consortium comprising construction firm GMR, airport operator Fraport and state-owned Indian airport operator Airports Authority of India, now plans to increase the airport’s solar power capabilities to 20MW by 2020.

The increase in its solar capabilities means that Indira Gandhi has become the first airport in the world to be registered under the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).
