Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International (IGI) airport becomes the 1st airport in India that switched to hydro and solar power for its consumption needs from 1st June 2022, to run entirely on a combination of these forms of green energy. The majority of the consumption is hydro dependent.

  • This reduces energy emissions by 2 lakh tonnes of carbon dioxide per year which would satisfy the airport’s goal to achieve the ‘Net Zero Carbon Emissions Airport’ target by 2030.

Key Highlights:
i.Since 1st June 2022, around 6 percent of the airport’s electricity requirement is being met from on-site solar power plants, while the remaining 94 percent energy is from hydropower plants.

  • The Delhi IGI airport has 7.84 MW solar plants on the airside and 5.3 MW  of rooftop solar power plants on the cargo terminals of the IGI airport.
  • For hydropower, Delhi International Airport Limited (DIAL) has signed a long-term power purchase agreement (PPA) with a Himachal Pradesh-based hydropower producing company until 2036.

ii.The other green initiatives at the airport include green buildings, green transportation measures such as electric vehicles, improving operational efficiency to reduce emissions and management of greenhouse gases (GHG) as part of the Airport Council International’s (ACI) Airport Carbon Accreditation.
Other facts:
i.In June 2022, 62 electric vehicles will be added to its fleet of vehicles, thus phasing out all its diesel and petrol vehicles.
ii.In 2020, the Delhi airport became the 1st in the Asia-Pacific region to achieve ‘Level 4+’ under ACI’s airport carbon accreditation program.
iii.In 2019, DIAL had introduced TaxiBots, a vehicle that allows aircrafts in taxiing without turning on the engines, thus further reducing carbon emissions.
Note – In 2015, the Cochin International Airport in Kerala became the 1st airport in the world to run using solar energy.
