Indian Government Aims to Turn 90 Airports Carbon-Neutral by 2024
India is making strides towards its commitment to achieving net zero emissions by 2070, with several Indian airports leading the way in the transition to green energy. The Delhi International Airport Limited (DIAL) has signed a long-term power purchase agreement with a Himachal Pradesh-based hydropower producing company, enabling the Delhi airport to be powered entirely by renewable energy. DIAL also has a 7.84 MW solar power plant on the airside, and stakeholders have added another 5.3 MW rooftop solar power plant. India's Civil Aviation Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia has announced plans for more than 90 airports in the country to be carbon-neutral by 2024.
