Electric buses are taking off at airports across the country in the effort to achieve net-zero emissions while reducing the impact of diesel fuel on the environment.
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) recently awarded $27 million to a dozen airports to purchase zero-emission buses, charging stations and equipment to service planes at gates. The money is in addition to more than $300 million airports received in grants last year for electrifying efforts, according to Canary Media.
Airport operations contribute only about 1.7 percent of carbon dioxide emissions to the aviation sector compared to more than 97 percent of the emissions from jet fuel burned on flights, the FFA says. But as the Canary article indicates, replacing the buses and ground equipment with electric options will eliminate the release of diesel exhaust into the atmosphere.
Examples of airports transitioning their bus fleets include:
Dave Lubach is managing editor of the facilities market.
Man died from injuries suffered in a fall from an escalator inside Acrisure Stadium.
