Eindhoven Airport in the Netherlands is planning to boost its energy output significantly by adding more solar panels to the terminal roof.
The airport says it will install 1,068 new solar panels on the roof in June, bringing the total installed to at least 1,708. This expansion is expected to increase the amount of self-generated energy from 200 MWh to approximately 590 MWh per year.
The airport also plans to install 76 solar panels on the general aviation/business aviation terminal roof by the end of 2023, generating an annual energy output of about 27.5 MWh.
Additionally, it plans to install another 845 solar panels on the roof of the terminal this year, which is estimated to produce 230 MWh of self-generated energy per year.
According to the airport, these initiatives are aligned with its sustainability goals and are fits with the vision of the Eindhoven Airport District.
Eindhoven is the second largest airport in the Netherlands, moving close to seven million passengers annually.
