EWR Terminal A Achieves LEED Gold

Newark Liberty International Airport’s Terminal A has been awarded LEED Gold certification by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED).

The USGBC’s LEED certification recognizes buildings, homes, and neighborhoods that prioritize environmental sustainability through their design, construction and operation. The 1 million-square-foot Terminal A features a variety of sustainable design elements, including the largest solar rooftop installation at any U.S. airport atop the terminal’s parking deck, new electric buses to support shuttle operations, water-efficient fixtures reducing potable water demand by more than 45 percent, a cool roof designed to reflect sunlight, absorbing less solar energy and reducing the heat gain on the building, and energy-efficient indoor lighting and controls.

EWR is also providing charging and electrical infrastructure to enable airlines’ transition to electric ground-support equipment (GSE) across the terminal.
