Engie Brasil Energia SA: a solution for Braslia airport will supply Azul planes with renewable energy
ENGIE, a leading company in the production of 100% renewable electricity in Brazil, has signed an agreement with Azul Linhas for the supply of renewable energy to supply electricity and maintain air conditioning in the airline’s aircraft when they are stationed at Brasilia airport. This will replace the fossil fuel equipment used for this purpose until now. With this solution, there is a reduction in carbon emissions, which makes the airline as well as the terminal itself more sustainable.
The technology also reduces aircraft fuel consumption and therefore Azul’s operating costs.
“The use of these solutions with renewable energies will result in a significant reduction in greenhouse gas emissions. In addition, the proposed solution will bring greater efficiency and safety to airport operations, reducing the movement of equipment on the area of the airport apron”, explains the general manager of ENGIE Solutions in Brazil, Jacques-Olivier Klotz. “Reducing energy consumption and lowering emissions are in line with ENGIE’s objective to act to accelerate the transition to a carbon-neutral world. In addition, we help companies to be more sustainable and efficient , by optimizing their electrical energy costs”, concludes the executive.
Thanks to the contract with Azul, ENGIE now supplies all national airlines operating from Brasilia airport. The use of this solution with renewable energies should lead to a reduction of approximately 20,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions each year according to the company’s estimates, the equivalent of planting more than 120,000 trees.
For Roberto Luiz, head of aviation activity at Inframerica, the Brasília airport operator, in addition to the benefits of sustainability, the solution translates into a considerable reduction in noise levels in the area of the apron. airport traffic. “In addition to being less polluting, the electrical system is quieter. An additional gain is significantly fewer obstacles on the tarmac in the parking area. The product we have today at the airport is a combination perfect for everyone: less equipment, less noise and pollution, with greater efficiency, lower cost and greater agility,” he says.
The executive also notes that Brasilia Airport is working to implement other clean energy solutions in the airport terminal: “We have built a photovoltaic power plant at the airport with today 7 % of all terminal consumption generated from solar panels,” he adds.
“The culture of operational sustainability and efficiency is a constant in Azul’s daily activities. We are very satisfied with the results of our operational optimization processes so far and we continue to pursue the objective of to be increasingly efficient and sustainable. Many teams from various areas of Azul as well as our partners are working together to make our processes and flights ever more efficient in terms of fuel consumption”, underlines Daniel Tkacz, Vice President operations at Azul.
In 2021, ENGIE equipped 22 jet bridges at Brasilia airport using the same technology. The Company now hopes to be able to offer the renewable energy supply solution to other airport terminals in Brazil.
Our group is a world reference in low-carbon energies and services. Together with our 170,000 employees, our customers, partners and stakeholders, we are committed to accelerating the transition to a carbon neutral world, thanks to reduced energy consumption and more environmentally friendly solutions. Inspired by our purpose, we reconcile economic performance and positive impact on people and the planet, relying on our key businesses (gas, renewable energies, services) to offer competitive solutions to our customers.
