Passenger Terminal Today - Dan Symonds
Edinburgh Airport in Scotland has partnered with green energy company Katrick Technologies to place several wind mapping sensors across the estate, including on the terminal roof and around the runway, to examine areas of unexploited low-level wind power.
The data collected by the sensors will help determine the optimal areas to capture and convert energy using Katrick’s innovative wind panels. This will help the airport to generate additional green energy and become more energy efficient.
Danny Quinn, technical asset director at Edinburgh Airport, said, “As an airport we are always looking to embrace fresh ideas, particularly when it comes to the generation of green energy, and this technology has the potential to provide new opportunities around this.
