All types of airport operations are going electric as efforts continue to cut emissions from internal combustion engines and other sources of pollutants at the world’s airports. Holland’s four biggest airports aim to use 100% renewable electricity starting in 2018 In order to help meet their own electricity demand or otherwise offset emissions from fossil fuels, increasing numbers of airports are adding renewable generating resources. The latest airport to join the electrification trend is Royal Schiphol Group which manages four airports in the Netherlands. Royal Schiphol has agreed to financially back enough renewable energy from wind farms around the country to support its operations beginning in 2018.
