Azul planes are now powered with renewable energy at Brasilia Airport

ENGIE, which specializes in 100% renewable energy generation in Brazil, informs that it signed a contract with Azul Linhas Aereas to provide electricity and air conditioning to the company’s planes with renewable energy, while they are parked at Brasilia Airport. As a result, equipment powered by fossil fuels that used to supply such fuel will be replaced, generating a reduction in carbon emissions and making both the airline and the terminal more sustainable. The technology also reduces the consumption of aviation kerosene and, consequently, the operational cost for Azul. With the Azul contract, ENGIE will now serve all national airlines operating at Brasilia airport. The use of this solution with renewable energy should lead to a reduction of around 20 thousand tons in CO2 emissions per year at the terminal, according to company estimates, the equivalent of planting more than 120 thousand trees. Last year, ENGIE equipped 22 departure and arrival bridges at Brasilia airport with this technology. The company now expects to be able to take the renewable energy supply solution to other airport terminals in the country, which will represent a significant reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, in addition to resulting in greater operational efficiency and more security for the airport, which will have less movement of mobile equipment in the aircraft parking lot. – https://aeroin.net/avioes-da-azul-agora-sao-alimentados-com-energia-renovavel-no-aeroporto-de-brasilia/
