New Zealand’s Auckland Airport will be working with the support of the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Authority (EECA) to achieve energy-saving targets.

The airport will invest more than $3m in measuring and managing energy over the next three years. With the implementation of the programme, the airport plans to save 6GWh of energy. This amount of energy is worth more than $2m and can provide electricity to 750 homes every year.

This has the potential of reducing approximately 1,000t of carbon emissions every year.

The EECA is supporting the project under its group-wide energy management programme, which helps to embed energy management.

"We need to engage, educate and facilitate change."

A total of eight tenants will be involved in improving the airport’s energy use with the help of workshops and guidance developed for the wider group.

The first stage will see the installation of an energy monitoring system, which will help in identifying energy use and potential savings in businesses across the airport business district. A wide range of sectors, including freight, logistics, commercial, retail and hospitality, will be covered by the tenants.

The energy use of buildings will be verified independently under the airport’s Nabersnz scheme.

EECA chief executive Mike Underhill said that Auckland Airport was leading the way in demonstrating the business benefits of improved energy use, as well as forming partnerships between landlord and tenant.

"This three-year project will generate valuable information and guidance that EECA will use to help all businesses reap the advantages of improved energy use," Underhill said.
