Munich Airport is currently trialling the use of a new system for sustainable energy generation.

The system, a container utilising photovoltaic panels and wind rotors from FlowGen, is being used to charge electric vehicles on site, and will remain in operational testing for the next 12 months.

Nathalie Leroy, Managing Director for Finance and Infrastructure at Munich Airport and Dirk Küster, CEO of FlowGen Development & Management AG

The container is currently being utilised by car rental companies along the airport’s eastern side, with new rental cars being charged by three turbines and photovoltaic panels as they are delivered.

Capable of producing up to 200 kW hours of energy, data on the container will be collected and analysed to determine the feasibility of the method for future usage.

Equipped with FlowGen solar and battery storage technology, the system is being considered for various use cases beyond the airport industry, including agriculture, construction and manufacturing.
