The photovoltaic park at Athens International Airport (AIA), formally inaugurated on Wednesday, is the world’s largest photovoltaic (PV) power plant operating at an airport.
The 20-million-euro, 8 MWp PV plant was inaugurated by Environment, Energy and Climate Change Minister George Papaconstantinou. It was completed in six months and will contribute decisively to AIA’s goal to considerably reduce its carbon footprint.
According to estimates, the AIA PV will generate 11 million KWh of electricity annually reducing carbon dioxide emissions by 10,000 tons/year.
