The FP7 project "CASCADE: ICT for Energy Efficient Airports" has developed a hard- and software solution for airports to save energy. This solution makes use of an ISO 50001 standardized Energy Action Plan and tries to detect faults in the complex energy systems of airport buildings.


In its last phase, CASCADE project is able to demonstrate its results in two European airports, Milano Malpensa MXP and Roma Fiumicino FCO. A significant optimizing potential could be identified in both airports.

The project and its results have been presented at Passenger Terminal Expo 2014 in Barcelona, the most highly regarded airport terminal conference in the world with delegates ranging from managers and their teams to CEOs from over 85 countries.
