In order to conserve energy, Munich Airport (MUC) is reducing its lights and lowering its heating. In an effort to lessen its dependency on gas, Germany recently launched a package of energy-saving measures for consumers and businesses.
There was concern that there might not be enough gas to heat homes over the winter. This sparked a heated debate in Germany about how to conserve gas and lessen energy use.
The M logo lights up on the approach to the airport, and Munich Airport, a major hub for Lufthansa (LHAB) (LHA), said it has already turned off 7,000 lights throughout the airport to do its part. Additionally, there is no longer any lighting on the Munich Airport Center’s distinctive fiberglass membrane roof.
“It’s one of the most visible measures that FMG is taking to reduce consumption at the airport in light of the current situation on the energy market,” airport operator FMG said in a press release on August 31, 2022.
According to FMG, the energy savings from turning off thousands of lights throughout the airport are equal to the usage of about 850 households.
Don’t forget your coat if you’re going this winter via an airport. Like other public buildings in Germany, the terminals at the Munich Airport will be heated to a maximum of 19 degrees Celsius (66 Fahrenheit).
FMG claimed that in addition to creating a specific team, it has also started working on further energy-saving techniques.
