Impacts on Practice: Using Airfield LED Lighting to Save Energy and Costs
TRB's Airport Cooperative Research Program's latest Impacts on Practice: Using Airfield LED Lighting to Save Energy and Costs explores how New Hampshire’s Manchester-Boston Regional Airport (MHT) and King County International Airport (BFI) in Seattle, Washington used ACRP Synthesis 35: Issues with Use of Airfield LED Light Fixtures to guide the decision to replace its airfield taxiway incandescent lighting with an light emitting diode (LED) system. MHT airport officials found that there were no extraordinary issues with removing snow around LED lights, and discovered that maintenance activities have been reduced. BFI has witnessed a reduction in energy use by seven percent over the previous year due in part to the new LED lighting.
