The First Green Airport in Europe

Bournemouth, a tourist center in the South of England has become the first Green Airport in Europe which is "carbon neutral". The transformation took place as part of the programme of reconstruction of the airport which installed solar panels with a capacity of 74,98 kWp.

For this reason, Bournemouth airport has solar panels on roofs and parasols installed widely in the various sections of the site. There is also a separate sector which have installed solar panels with South-facing to take advantage of solar energy in the best possible way.
This was complemented by an improvement in the efficiency of facilities for indoor lighting, operating systems and other sources of consumption of energy. Set has been achieved in Bournemouth installations to be carbon neutral, making it the first Airport in Europe to achieve this.
