Aircraft Ground Energy System - Simulator (AGES-S)
A brand-new IT solution developed by Zurich Airport for other airports.
Assess economic and environmental benefit of substituting aircraft Auxiliary Power Unit (APU) usage with ground energy systems.
Why substitute APU usage with ground energy system?
APUs emit CO2 and local air pollutants. Ground energy systems can lead to up to 90% fuel savings and associated air pollutant emissions.
What does AGES-S do?
AGES-S provides snapshot of expected benefits – both economic and environmental – based on different scenarios. Enter values based on your region, country and airport configuration, then watch AGES-S provide you a result!
Who can use it?
Anyone interested in innovative ways to save money AND reduce their environmental footprint.
