Projects involving photovoltaic systems

Bologna Airport is working to develop and implement photovoltaic system projects that will make the airport increasingly virtuous from an energy perspective, exploiting solar energy.


Work on two new photovoltaic systems is almost complete: one on the roof of the baggage handling system (BHS) building, with the positioning of around 270 panels and an installed capacity of around 100 kW, and a second system over the roof of the terminal, with over 750 panels and capacity in excess of 340 kW.

At the same time, the Company is working on the project for a large photovoltaic system to the north of the runway, which will contribute significantly to decarbonisation of the entire airport. The study currently envisages the construction of a photovoltaic system that could span 30 hectares and reach a capacity of 20 MW. Aeroporto di Bologna intends to self-generate enough energy to meet its current electricity needs.

Other works

At present, the electricity not self-generated on site is 100% from renewable sources, while methane gas is purchased with offset emissions. Furthermore, several efficiency measures have been implemented in recent years, such as the trigeneration plant and relamping of the workshop, light towers and passenger terminal. These green projects, together with new initiatives, will make it possible to reduce emissions and facilitate the airport's decarbonisation.
