Auckland Airport to install free electric vehicle charging points

Auckland Airport in New Zealand has installed two new electric vehicle (EV) rechargers at its domestic valet car park and is planning to install a further two charging points in its public parking lots. Use of the plug-in points will be free-of-charge to the public.

With a rapid plug-in charger already available at the Z station on Tom Pearce Drive, and two further rapid chargers to be installed in the airport precinct’s shopping center car park this year, the airport will soon be equipped with seven charging stations to support the New Zealand government’s recently announced Electric Vehicle Program.

Graham Matthews, general manager – airport development and delivery, Auckland Airport, said, “Work is already underway on a significant upgrade and expansion of our international terminal to cater for the possible tripling in passenger numbers over the next 30 years. However, to support the growth in domestic and international air travel, we are also committed to improving the infrastructure that not only supports journeys to and from the airport, but also encourages sustainable travel choices.

“A key part of this is working with Auckland Transport to improve public transport links to the airport. But we are also investing in our own infrastructure, such as the plug-in recharging stations and new park and ride facilities to reduce vehicle movements around the airport precinct.”

The new international terminal upgrade will incorporate a number of environmentally sustainable features on completion in 2018, including energy-efficient lighting, heating, cooling and ventilation, as well as low water fixtures and fittings.
