Whats dAIR ?
dAIR is a policy tool +
The aim is to lower the carbon emissions
dAIR is a policy tool Identification and exchange of best practices Drafting of action plans Test cases
Objective 1: reducing the carbon emissions linked to surface access
The starting point Surface access : up to 50% of the carbon emissions of an airport The public transport systems are shaped for only one type of user (the passenger)
Interim results Local authorities have to provide more with less money Technology is providing solutions Sometimes solutions come from common sense Concertation needs Need to adapt existing solutions (eg: bus on demand) See what has been tested in other places Malta – air conditioning in buses- closing doors Stakeholders forum
Objective 2: reducing emissions from airport operations
How Airport Operations represent around 10% of carbon emissions By helping airports to engage in their ACA programme
Interim results The return on investments targets Engagement of stakeholders Ideas out of beaten tracks Use of local resources Credible+ Negotiation arguments What outcomes ? Malta – air conditioning in buses- closing doors Stakeholders forum Avoid buzz investments
Objective 2: one strong theme, INNOVATION
Whats innovation? An overall special point of attention within the projet's 2 sub-objectives is 'innovation', and more specifically, the way for public actors to engage business and R&D institutions in reaching the ambitious goals of creating well connected green airport regions. Intelligent co-operation models between project PPs, business and R&D community can lead to easy access to existing state-of-the-art solutions and/or development of new products/services and their rapid market uptake.
Innovation or not ? Smarter use of existing resources – Eco-driving incentives – Use of snow to provide air conditionning – Bus on demand Equipment – Electric cars, smart floors Infrastructures – Metro tram Processes: – Procurement – Mobility plans
