Bangalore Airport awarded the PEER Platinum certification

Bangalore International Airport Limited (BIAL), operator of Bangalore International Airport (BLR) has been awarded the prestigious PEER (Performance Excellence in Electricity Renewal) Platinum certification by Green Building Certification Inc. (GBCI), the foremost authority on sustainability in building design, construction, and operations. This honour makes BIAL the first airport operator in the world to receive an outstanding score of 92/100 for its airport power infrastructure.

To ensure that the BLR Airport’s power system continues to support its sustainable development goals, BIAL sought PEER certification to analyse and improve the airport’s power system performance and was awarded the ‘Platinum Rating’ based on GBCI’s rigorous certification and review process.

GBCI is the one of the world’s leading sustainability and health certification and credentialing body and is responsible for administering the LEED green building program. BIAL has demonstrated exceptional performance through its commitment to build sustainably. About 98 per cent of the project’s distribution circuit is protected with distribution redundancy and auto restoration. It also has a 6.8MW onsite solar PV system that supports essential services during grid failure and long-term blackout and 100 per cent of its energy mix comes from renewable energy. 

Further to achieving permanent reductions in its energy demand and consumption, BIAL has implemented energy conservation programmes such as replacement of all CFL (compact fluorescent lamp)/ Halogen lights with LED fixtures, PLC (Programmable Logic Controller) based Terminal Light Automation System (TLA) to monitor and minimise the energy consumption of terminal lights, and Chiller Plant Optimizer (CPO) solution for monitoring the operation and optimising the chiller plant performance under various load conditions.
