1st Fully Solar-Powered Airport in India

An airport in southern India is the world’s first to run completely on solar energy following the commissioning of a 12-megawatt project overseen by Bosch Ltd. The undertaking, at Cochin International Airport, is estimated to generate more than 50,000 units of electricity daily and will make CIAL grid-power neutral, Bosch said in a news release on Tuesday, Bloomberg reported. Built on land covering 20 hectares, the project is the largest of its kind to be constructed at an airport in India, according to the release. Bosch has 50 megawatts of solar projects in India either commissioned or under construction, C.M. Venugopalan, head of Bosch India Energy Business, said in the release. India has 4 gigawatts of solar capacity currently, with a target of reaching 100 gigawatts by 2022. Cochin is located in the city of Kochi in the Indian state of Kerala.
