Melbourne Airport in Australia is exploring the idea of developing its own electricity generation in a bid to reduce carbon emissions.

Feasibility studies for installing wind generators, a gas-fired plant or even a power plant fired by woodchip on its Tullamarine site are being conducted by the authorities.

These sustainable measures have been included in a new $330m redevelopment programme for the airport’s international terminal.

The first phase of the programme includes a $108m departures wing, which features automated sun blinds, floor slab heating and cooling, rainwater harvesting and grey water recycling.
