Vancouver International Airport to Lower Emissions, Improve Efficiency

Vancouver International Airport (YVR) plans to invest $135 million over 10 years to become net zero by 2030.

The airport's other goals include meeting operational requirements more efficiently and using less energy for heating and cooling, cooking, lighting, and other electrical needs.

The projects will be led by Schneider Electric, which will assist in the digital transformation of YVR’s energy system and play a large role in operational reliability and helping to reduce emissions.

One of the first projects Schneider Electric embarked on was to eliminate operational risks and improve occupational safety by upgrading the airport’s install base.

Schneider Electric will continue to help YVR with their Energy Management Information System, a solution using Schneider Electric’s Resource Advisor and EcoStruxure Power Operation for carbon emission monitoring, built on top of an existing monitoring system, which will help the airport meet its 2030 net zero goals.

“At YVR we are focused on energy conservation and electrification across our operations to reduce carbon emissions and strengthen the green economy,” said Christoph Rufenacht, Vice President, Airport Development & Asset Optimization at YVR, in a statement. “Working with Schneider Electric, we will enhance how we monitor and manage our energy use, optimize our current energy infrastructure, and explore innovative solutions to maximize carbon reduction. We are pleased to extend our long-time partnership and look forward to creating a greener, more sustainable future at YVR with Schneider Electric.”
