In 2020, the solar park at Groningen Airport Eelde generated more energy than expected. 6,600 homes are supplied with green electricity instead of the expected 6,200 households. This is due to the clear spring weather and the many hours of sunshine over the past year.
It is the first solar park in the world to be constructed between an active take-off, taxiway and the apron. According to the airport manager, it is fantastic that in this way the central area has a dual function. It is also beyond expectations.
Several airports and organizations are interested in the sustainability project. There is an increasing demand for making locations more sustainable.
