Ameresco provides support for every aspect of airport sustainability.
- Our proprietary metering and modeling solutions combine real-time and historic data to generate accurate projections that can be used to identify the most beneficial energy efficiency and renewable energy projects.
- Our in-house team of engineers and project managers designs and builds custom solutions for each airport client. As an independent company, we are technology- and equipment-agnostic.
There are several ways to secure funding for sustainability improvements at airports. Through an energy savings performance contract (ESPC), capital expenses are amortized across a fixed period and paid for with energy savings, resulting in no additional capital outlays. Through a power purchase agreement (PPA), Ameresco owns and operates renewable energy systems and sells the energy they produce to an airport at a fixed rate for a set number of years. Federal and State credits and incentives can also help to defray the costs of upgrades and new equipment.
There is no better time than today to start planning for airport sustainability, and Ameresco can provide the support and expertise needed through every phase of the process.
