Dubai International Airport’s under-construction Concourse D has been designed to be one of the most energy efficient and low-carbon footprint airports in the world.
The project is implementing a number of green initiatives to reduce the environmental impact of the new facility. This includes adopting recycling programs during construction, improved insulation, use of renewable energy sources, and utilizing locally sourced and recycled building materials.
Also, nearly 1.8 percent of the power used at Concourse D will be generated through an array of 192 solar panels measuring about 450 square meters on the roof of the terminal building.
Dubai International Airport’s Concourse D will become the new home of over 100 international airlines that fly to the airport upon its completion in 2015.
