Growth of Airport Electrification: Vehicles, Mobile Equipment, and Aircraft

Airport planners have few resources at their disposal to effectively plan for the projected growth of electric vehicles, electric mobile equipment, and electric aircraft. As airports are exploring how best to transition to the increasing electrification of airside and landside operations, there is a multitude of variables for them to consider and they need resources to plan and move forward. The objective of this research is to develop a planning guide, including an executive summary, for airports to inventory and assess the anticipated growth in electrification needs for vehicles, aircraft, and mobile equipment. As part of this inventory and assessment, airports will need to evaluate opportunities, considerations, and impacts
