The pressure is mounting on the transportation sector to reach net zero emissions goals. Already the third largest contributor to transportation greenhouse gas emissions in the U.S., the sector is expected to triple emissions by 2050. To put the industry on the path towards achieving its zero emissions by 2050 goal, while meeting the increased demand for travel, significant decarbonization solutions must be implemented – and fast. This means supporting the expected increased power demand while maintaining reliability and consistent operations in the face of extreme weather and unpredictable power outages. As the urgency to decarbonize intensifies, organizations must adopt infrastructure that can do the long-term heavy lifting of reducing emissions while limiting reliance on an increasingly unreliable electricity grid.
Discover how AlphaStruxure is illuminating a new pathway to decarbonizing the air transportation sector at the New Terminal One (NTO) at John F. Kennedy International Airport. As NTO’s Energy as a Service provider, AlphaStruxure will design, build, and operate an integrated microgrid that will provide more sustainable, resilient, and cost-predictable energy that is locally generated. Featuring the largest rooftop solar array in New York City, and on any airport terminal in the United States, this project will deliver immediate greenhouse gas emission reductions of 38 percent over grid-sourced energy and will be the first resilient airport transit hub in the New York region that can function independently of the power grid.
