GMR Hyderabad Airport is now fully green

Taking a leap towards sustainability, GMR Hyderabad International Airport has announced its transition to 100% sustainable green energy for its energy consumption at the airport and across its ecosystem. Hyderabad Airport, in partnership with Telangana State Southern Power Distribution Company, TSSPDCL will revolutionalise its operation by harnessing the power of green energy through a combination of its own 10 MWp (megawatt peak) solar power plant and green energy supplied by TSSPDCL. The airport by integrating green energy into its operation and infrastructure will reduce its carbon footprint by approx. 9300 tons of carbon dioxide annually.

Pradeep Panicker, CEO of GHIAL, said, “In line with our belief in sustainable practices and renewable energy, this achievement is a significant step towards our commitment towards adopting environmentally friendly practices across the airport ecosystem. Hyderabad Airport is now powered by 100% renewable energy.”

GHIAL has been at the forefront of adopting energy-efficient practices ever since it started operations. It was the first LEED certified airport in Asia. Moreover, the airport encompasses a landscape spanning over 675 acres. This green belt serves as a natural carbon emissions sink, absorbing 240 tons of carbon dioxide from the environment annually.
