The number of airports has recently increased due to the fast growth of the aviation industry and the increment in the number of new destinations added to the flight network. The dynamic structure, 24-hour servicing, performing flight operations safely, and the provision of comfortable conditions for passengers in terminal buildings, has led to an increase in the energy consumption of airports. Energy management has become an important topic for the continuous improvement of energy performance in airports as they are sites with high and intense energy consumption. In this chapter, an energy management model is proposed for airports considering sustainable development principles. The proposed energy audit models are applicable to an international airport terminal building.
