Following a landmark deal between the Brisbane Airport Corporation (BAC) and government-owned energy generator, Stanwell; Brisbane Airport will soon be powered from 100 per cent renewable energy sources.

Stanwell will supply up to 185GWh of renewable energy each year, to enable all of BAC’s operations to run on clean energy, from the runway lights, to the terminals, travellators, escalators, retail shops, administration, IT and electric vehicles.

Brisbane Airport Corporation is Australia’s first airport operator to announce it will be powered by 100 per cent green energy by 2025.

The partnership with Brisbane Airport Corporation will source renewable energy from the Clarke Creek Wind Farm and BlueGrass Solar projects.

Brisbane Airport Corporation Chief Executive, Gert-Jan de Graaff, said the deal would mean BAC could meet its net zero emissions commitment by 2025, 25 years earlier than planned.

“We welcome this deal with Stanwell and are proud to be customer number one in its renewable energy pipeline,” Mr de Graaff said.

“This clean energy deal delivers on Brisbane Airport Corporation’s commitment to be a sustainable world leading airport city.

“Queenslanders can travel through our terminals knowing their journey begins and ends at one of the world’s most sustainable airports once this green energy begins flowing from regional Queensland.”

Stanwell CEO, Michael O’Rourke, said Stanwell was proud to be supporting Brisbane Airport Corporation accelerate its net zero target by 2025 through its retail arm Stanwell Energy.

“This is the first of many renewable energy options Stanwell Energy will be offering to support our commercial and industrial customers to meet their decarbonisation requirements,” Mr O’Rouke said.

“Stanwell Energy is unique in its approach when it comes to its service offering. Our dedicated account managers are able to work with customers to develop tailored energy contracts that provide flexibility, security, and access to renewable options.

“We are diversifying our generation portfolio in response to evolving market and consumer expectations to include renewable and low emission energy sources.”

    To realize the environmental goals of the aviation industry, the future of aviation largely depends on new technological solutions. In a number of countries around the world, initiatives are underway to assess the feasibility of producing alternative sustainable jet fuels based on renewable sources. These initiatives often take the form of partnership projects between private and public players. A clear check of the operation and accordingly maintenance during the transition to alternative energy will be an urgently needed step in the implementation.
