Eindhoven airport is growing and it is strongly committed to take this opportunity to invest in innovative solutions for a sustainable development. Therefore, this document proposes a strategic plan for reaching Zero CO2 emissions at Eindhoven airport. This document proposes to reduce the CO2 emissions from the building environment according to two steps. The first step focus on reducing the demand, by analyzing solutions as: advanced light strategies, heating and cooling technologies, and zoning and control systems. The second step concerns the implementation of renewable energy supply as: solar collectors, seasonal heat storage extension (aquifer), and wind technologies. Through a comparative analysis of the solution it is possible to establish which measures are the most cost-effective in order to minimize energy waste, improve comfort standards of the buildings, increase the environment awareness, and promote users responsibility behavior. Therefore, reaching Zero CO2 emissions in an economic-attractive way can be a key to success and lead Eindhoven Airport to become a front-runner among the most sustainable airports in Europe.
