•Taking another step towards the vision of a ‘Green India’, Mumbai international airport has become India’s first airport to launch vertical axis wind turbine (VAWT) and solar PV hybrid (solar mill) to explore the possibility of utilising wind energy for consumption purposes at the airport.

•The airport introduced the pilot program to ensure round the clock energy generation, harness maximum energy through wind power systems, while also enabling a highly efficient and low carbon future in the aviation sector.

•“This sustainable initiative undertaken by the airport aims in reducing dependence on conventional electricity which propels its journey towards ‘net zero’ emissions,” a Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport (CSMIA) spokesperson said.

•“To assist in enhancing capacity usage of green energy, CSMIA has deployed a 10Kwp hybrid solar mill consisting of 2 Kwp turbo mill (3 Savonius type VAWT) and 8 Kwp solar PV modules, with an estimated minimum energy generation of 36 Kwh/day,” a Mumbai airport official said.

•Officials revealed that WindStream Energy Technologies India Pvt Ltd has developed this first-of-its-kind, fully integrated, hybrid renewable energy product which harnesses solar and wind energy, combined, to generate electricity.
