Energy Conservation Strategies in Airports - A Case Study of Taoyuan, Songshan and Kaohsiung International Airports

Rapid technological and economic development have driven excessive consumption of energy and CO₂ emissions, which are polluting the environment and eroding natural ecology. Airports worldwide are placing greater importance on their environmental management. The authors first analyzed energy usage in international airports through literature review and expert interviews, and then developed energy-saving strategies specifically for air conditioning and lighting systems in airports. Next they surveyed respondents in TPE, TSA and KHH, to gather their views on the effectiveness and difficulty of the proposed actions. Based on results, regular maintenance was considered the most effective and easiest way to conserve energy in air conditioning systems. For lighting systems, respondents indicted that improving regulation and control would be the most effective measure but selecting appropriate light fixtures the easiest to implement. These results can serve as reference for airports in developing energy conservation strategies.
