FAA And DOT Award DFW Airport With $35M Grant For New Zero Carbon Electric Central Utility Plant

Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) is pleased to announce that it was awarded a $35 million grant from the FAA and Department of Transportation to build a new zero carbon central utility plant.

The grant is part of a $1 billion bipartisan infrastructure law to fund improvements to airports across the U.S.

DFW is the largest in the world and the first carbon-neutral airport in the U.S. As part of reaching the Airport’s goal of achieving Net Zero by 2030, DFW plans to construct a new Zero Carbon Electric Central Utility Plant and replace its aging steam piping distribution system with a highly efficient hot water piping system. This addresses current and future heating and cooling demand; improves resiliency and maximizes efficiency. The Airport is grateful to be awarded this grant by the Federal Aviation Administration and the Department of Transportation.
