Did you know the airport runs on renewable energy?

Eindhoven Airport is one of four Dutch airports that has been running on renewable energy since the beginning of last year.

It, along with Amsterdam’s Schipol Airport, Rotterdam The Hague Airport, and Lelystad Airport, is part of the Royal Schipol Group. Annually, these four airports use the same amount of electricity as 60,000 households. This is equivalent to a town the size of Delft.

From 1 January 2018, these four airports have run exclusively on renewable energy produced in the Netherlands. “We wanted nothing but sustainable power generated in the Netherlands,” Jos Nijhuis, President and CEO of Royal Schiphol Group, said when the company released the statement concerning this switch. “After all, one thing is certain: aviation can and must be made more sustainable.”

There are important elements of this collaboration with Eneco. “All the Schiphol Group airports are involved. Additional sustainable energy sources will also be developed in the Netherlands. This will allow our airports to increase their sustainability and offer economic benefits,” De Haas concludes.
