BIA switches to green energy
Belfast International Airport is the latest business in Northern Ireland to make the switch to renewable energy with Airtricity, Northern Ireland’s leading renewable energy provider.
Michael Donnelly, Airtricity Corporate Accounts Sales Manager, welcomed Belfast International Airport on board as a customer: “We are delighted that Belfast International Airport has made the switch to green energy with Airtricity. Belfast International is an important part of the infrastructure of Northern Ireland and is used by thousands of tourists and business people alike. By switching to renewable energy with Airtricity, Belfast International Airport is making a statement about its environmental commitment as well as delivering significant cost savings to their bottom line.”
Alan Whiteside, Operations Director, Belfast International Airport, said: “This two-year contract transforms the airport into a totally green energy user. We use about 12.5 million KWH (units) each year and this decision to go with Airtricity underlines our commitment to sustainable energy. We believe it also represents value-for-money so, in a real sense, we’re hitting our energy target and also addressing the need to drive down costs”.
