SFO bags award for being World’s First Zero Net Energy Airport Facility

The San Francisco International Airport (SFO) has bagged Airports Council International - North America (ACI-NA)’s Environmental Achievement Award at the Airports @ Work conference in Salt Lake City, Utah. SFO received the award in the Environmental Management Category for its Airfield Operations Facility, which was recently certified as a Zero Net Energy facility by the International Living Future Institute (ILFI).

“As an industry leader in sustainability, we are proud to be the first airport in the world to achieve a certified Zero Net Energy facility,” said Airport Director Ivar C. Satero. “This represents a major milestone in our environmental efforts, and we are honored to be recognized by Airports Council International - North America for this achievement".

Completed in 2015, SFO’s Airfield Operations Facility is the first airport facility in the world to operate using zero net energy. Over the past year, the facility generated more electricity than it consumed, thanks to a rooftop solar array which generates 136 kilowatts of energy. It runs off 100% carbon-free electricity and uses zero fossil fuels for the operation of the building.

In 2017, SFO set an ambitious goal to achieve zero waste going to landfill, carbon neutrality, and Zero Net Energy across its entire airport campus. Since then, SFO has reduced its use of electricity by over 4 million kilowatt hours, saving enough energy to power over 600 homes, and added over 1 megawatt of solar energy across the airport.

This is the third ACI-NA award that SFO has received for its environmental leadership, and its second award in the environmental management category.
