From 2009 - 2018 Nationwide Utilities helped Farnborough Airport reach net zero...

Our Client

Farnborough Airport is the largest private business aviation airport in the UK and the most modern of its kind.

They have a keen focus on sustainability with goals to reduce carbon emissions across the site. This culminated in reaching the status of the first business aviation airport in the world to achieve carbon neutral status.

Our Challenge  

The airport had been facing numerous utility challenges and Nationwide Utilities were tasked with providing support and guidance in the following areas.

  • Consumption & Carbon Reporting   

They wanted to better understand their electricity, gas and water usage to reduce consumption and have data for compliance purposes.

  • Procurement 

The client wanted to ensure utility costs were kept as low as possible whilst also utilising renewable energy supplies to achieve their carbon reduction goals. They had traditionally opted for long-term fixed rate contracts.

  • Utility Metering

They were having issues with their water metering with leaks onsite causing excessive bills that needed resolving.

  • EV Charging

There had been issues with their EV charging infrastructure. The charging units were only 5 years old but were very unreliable, slow to charge and the reporting platform wasn't functioning. They had been receiving inadequate support from their existing service provider to resolve the issues.
