22 Oct Green Growth: How GSE powered by alternative energy can provide benefits to ground service providers. By Josh Smith
Environmentally minded leaders around the world are constantly looking for ways to lower carbon dioxide (CO2) output and reduce their carbon footprint. In the aviation industry, ground handling operations have sought alternative energy ground support equipment (GSE) to help achieve these goals.
At ACT, the company has developed a line of UL outdoor rated, high efficiency battery chargers to charge electric GSE, utilizing lead acid as well as lithium-ion batteries. “ACT Quantum GSE Chargers are designed with Wi-Fi connectivity and can remotely implement energy management programs such as Peak Shaving, which reduces electrical usage during periods of maximum demand for the power utility, and Demand Response, which reduces electrical usage temporarily based on change in the price of power,” says Nelson.
