ALIGHT - Sustanaible Aviation

A Lighthouse for the introduction of sustainable aviation solutions for the future

With Copenhagen Airport as the lighthouse an example of the sustainable airport of the future will be created. The project will both focus upon infrastructure for sustainable aviation fuel and renewable energy sources for ground activities. 

Sustainable aviation fuel

The goal is to improve the logistics chain and make the use of SAF efficient and cost-effective. An innovative concept will be demonstrated at CPH.

Renewable energy sources 

Sustainable aviation fuel is a key element in achieving climate goals for aircrafts. Electricity is the preferred renewable energy carrier for airport operation.

Smart energy

Smartening of airport energy supply and use will be demonstrated. A smart energy system will ensure utilization of renewable energy.



ALIGHT is an EU-funded Smart Airport project. It had its take off November 2020 and in November 2024 it will have a safe and clean landing.

16 European partners are working hard towards zero-emission aviation. Copenhagen Airport is coordinating the project and fellow airports in Rome, Vilnius and Warsaw are planning to replicate best practice solutions from ALIGHT. An ALIGHT concept will demonstrate:

1) the supply, integration and use of sustainable aviation fuel

2) the supply, integration and implementation of smart energy
