Sustainability at the Airport

An Austin Energy Green Building Webinar

Webinar Details

Sustainability at the Airport Webinar

Over its 21-year operation, Austin-Bergstrom International Airport (AUS) has grown substantially. The number of passengers has tripled during that time, with significant further growth expected over the next 20 years. As part of this growth and expansion, AUS has prioritized sustainability, incorporating it into capital and operations improvements, and reducing the carbon footprint of the facility.

This seminar will include speakers instrumental in the planning, design and installations at the airport and will include on-the-ground footage of the buildings and systems that make the airport sustainable.

Through on-site video highlights and panel discussion, participants will get a behind the scenes look at what “takes off” at AUS, including:

  • LEED Gold Terminal Expansion
  • Community Solar installation atop the Blue Garage
  • Baggage cart and fleet electrification
  • New EV fast chargers

Date: March 23, 2021

Time: 11:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m.

Location: This seminar will be hosted as a live webinar.
