ACRP Insight Event – Airport Energy Resiliency

Airports are facing an increasing number of challenges and opportunities as they strive to expand energy resiliency. As an example, a growing use of electrical power for building systems may help airports achieve airport environmental goals. At the same time, they will be competing with their tenants, customers, and surrounding communities for that same electricity as demand grows for electricity to power everything from electric aircraft to electric ground vehicles, on the landside and the airside. Increased dependence on energy infrastructure will make airports more vulnerable to power disruptions, while upgrades to airports' power systems and the nation's power grid will take time and come with significant costs. The objective of this project is to conduct an in-person ACRP Insight Event for airport-industry practitioners, relevant stakeholders, and subject matter experts (SMEs) to discuss the key factors related to airport energy resiliency, encourage stakeholder engagement, learn about current practices and trends, and identify future research needs.
