San Francisco International Airport (SFO) recognized the financial, operational and community-driven imperative to find cost-effective, sustainable and resilient means to both mitigate climate impacts and adapt to a climate-impacted future by reducing its energy needs.

In 2018, SFO engaged a consultant team, led by specialists Arup and Stok, to study how to reduce energy across SFO’s 100+ building campus. The team worked with SFO to develop a ZNE plan, which outlines the multifaceted steps necessary to reduce energy use across the campus’s operations and supply the balance with 100% renewable energy to meet the airport’s ZNE goal.
