The Grid Flexibility by Electrifying Energy Networks (GREEN) for Airports project will investigate the electricity network infrastructure for the electrification of airports with electric aircraft (EA) and electric vehicles (EVs).

The project aims to include electrified aviation into a whole energy systems approach. An electricity network model will be developed for airports, by considering temporal power consumption and the charging requirements of EA and EVs.

Electricity network operating strategies will be studied with electric charging schemes, and we will explore airport energy networks that interact with power grids. A feasibility study will be conducted to investigate demand-side response through ‘airport to grid’, using aggregated EA and EVs.
