India announced the first airport in the world to use solar energy completely.
A solar power plant with 46,150 solar panels was installed on 45 acres of land near the cargo area of Cochin International Airport (CIAL).
According to a statement by CIAL, it provides 50,000 to 60,000 units of electricity per day to the airport, which makes the airport "absolutely electric neutral ".
India's leading sustainability airport is already using solar energy from two small power plants installed in 2013.
But the latest increase has brought its solar capacity to 12 MW (MW)
Daily electricity is enough to run all the daily functions of the airport. • Record-
In Kochin, India, a fisherman broke the airport on a boat. Photo: The new Fotolia/AP plant is expected to generate 18 million solar energy units per year, an amount that could charge about 10,000 homes nationwide over a year.
Sustainable development projects are expected to offset more than 3 lakh (300,000)
According to the airport, metric tons for the next 25 years are equivalent to planting 3 million trees or not traveling 750 miles.
Cochin International Airport is the busiest and largest airport in Kerala and the third busiest airport in India. According to international passenger statistics, more than 3,750,000 passengers were received from 2013 to 2014.
The world's best airports its latest developments are one of several "green" initiatives currently being implemented at global airports or planned to be implemented in the future.
Last year, Mexico City announced plans to build a new international airport aimed at becoming the most sustainable airport in the world.
The new airport in the Mexican capital will be designed by British architect Norman Foster, who is in charge of cucumbers (30 St Mary Axe)

The new hub, which is expected to be completed in 2018, will use minimal energy and provide an efficient passenger experience at a shorter walking distance.

Heathrow Terminal 2, which opened last year, is the world's first BREAM-certified airport terminal (

It is the longest building sustainability rating system in the world. T2’s eco-
Friendly features include "skylight and 10 m. high, floor-to-
Maximize the use of natural light in the ceiling windows "and" complex lighting control systems that keep energy in use by turning off LED lights when certain parts of the building are not in use ".
The terminal is close to the runway and helps reduce carbon emissions by reducing aircraft taxiing time.
Last year, Denver International Airport, the world's most convenient airport, installed its fourth solar cell array to generate up to 2 megawatts of electricity per year.
It reduces carbon emissions by about 2,200 metric tons a year, which is said to be enough to provide energy to 500 families in Denver for a year.

The manual was updated as a sustainable airport manual in 2009 and has since been used as a standard for sustainable design by National airports.
On 2006, several sustainable functions were installed in Terminal A of Boston Logan International Airport, including heat

The breakthrough development of sustainability since 2004, including an underground parking lot heated by hot water and automatic blinds at the airport terminal responding to natural light, has helped to save heating and air conditioning costs.
Phoenix Sky Port International Airport in Arizona last year won the LEED "gold medal" for its PHX Sky Train electric vehicle, reducing the airport's carbon footprint by nearly 6,000 tons per year.
