We provide power distribution and energy infrastructure solutions for Heathrow, Gatwick, Manchester, Stansted, London City and Luton airports. We understand the challenges UK airports are facing.

UK airports are under enormous pressure to ensure they have the capacity to keep up with demand, which in turn affects the performance of the energy infrastructure that keeps them running around the clock. As they expand to meet these pressures, airports around the country are greeted with an opportunity to reap the benefits of an energy transition where the energy market is decentralising and there is a sharper focus on sustainability.

Our airports provide connectivity between the UK and the rest of the world – any impact to the seamless passenger journey has wide-reaching consequences. Ensuring a safe continuity of electricity supply is key to keeping passengers moving. Maintaining resilience, managing energy costs and reducing the carbon footprint is a delicate and complex balance that all airports are currently facing.

Supporting expansion

In 2017, UK airports handled more than 285 million passenger journeys. That’s an increase of 15 million from 2016 and demand for air travel is set to increase 50 per cent by 2035.

The impact of required expansion will have significant implications for the energy infrastructure strategy and operation of UK airports. As a provider of power distribution and energy infrastructure solutions for Heathrow, Gatwick, Manchester, Stansted, London City and Luton airports, we understand the challenges UK airports are facing.

Managing resilience and cost

A one-second power interruption can affect an airport’s operations for hours, if not days. Having an experienced strategic energy infrastructure partner enables airports to outsource the design, build, management, operation and maintenance of their electrical assets. This enables the airport to remove the risk associated with managing these assets themselves and to focus on their day-to-day core business and their customers.

Airports are looking to reduce their energy consumption year-on-year whilst amaintaing security of supply. This can be achieved through on-site renewable generation and battery storage, replacing lighting with LEDs and keeping energy consumption low as the expectations of customers, retailers and airlines are increasing.

Reducing carbon emissions

Sustainability is particularly important for airports, with many having ambitious targets for carbon reduction. Many have introduced electric vehicles into their airside fleets and are offering electric vehicle charging services to their customers across their car parks and to public transport operators.

New technologies, such as electric vehicle charging and energy storage, and on-site generation will enable airports to achieve carbon emission and environmental targets.
