The product will be a Synthesis of Practice summarizing how airports have planned, financed, and developed renewable energy projects at Airports. The report will provide the industry examples for how renewable energy projects have been developed and approved consistent with aeronautical uses and grant assurances.
Synthesis of training practices specifically for Airport Operations personnel to prepare them for the airside, emergency, landside, security, and terminal areas, with a focus on Part 139 and Part 1542 training.
