Parking Company to Run Biodiesel Shuttles at Denver Airport

Canopy Airport Parking has partnered with Frontier Airlines to offer fliers a chance to ride to and from their green parking facility and the Frontier ticket counters on one of Canopy’s seven biodiesel and hybrid shuttles. Biodiesel Magazine reports the service will begin in late November: A 3,000-gallon tank will be installed on-site to refuel the bus fleet, according to Karl Kelman, Canopy’s marketing manager. “We also have buses that run on compressed natural gas and have a gasoline hybrid bus as well,” he said. In addition to biodiesel being used by Canopy’s shuttle buses, the innovative parking facility is expected to feature other environmentally friendly technologies, including solar power, geothermal and wind power. When the parking facility opens, Kelman said it should be the country’s first to feature energy efficient technologies from renewable sources. “We’re hopeful that at some point there will be other parking facilities like Canopy that integrate similar green features.” This parking facility is seen as a prototype in environmentally friendly facilities.

Denver Airport Getting ‘Green’ Parking Facility

Green Park DIA, a 4,200-stall parking lot servicing Denver International Airport, is setting a goal to be the world’s greenest parking facility. The $32 million Green Park DIA, which is being built to LEED Gold standards from the U.S. Green Building Council, will incorporate a number of environmentally friendly aspects, according to a press release. Construction will take seven months. Green.Switch Capital Corp., a subsidiary of Greenscape Capital Group Inc., will build, operate and own the facility. ProPark USA, which operates 330 parking locations across North America, will own 10 percent of the operation and take part in management. This facility will serve as a marketing showpiece for future business development. Green.Switch aims to sell its services as a third party green retrofitting operation to other parking facilities throughout North America. The company expects net operating income of about $5.1 million a year, on sales of up to $19 million a year. The facility will rely on both solar and wind energy, as well as harness methane from a landfill and use geothermal energy. The parking lot itself will feature porous pavement to prevent excessive runoff of chemicals into the water stream. Customers of the parking facility will be shuttled back and forth to the airport in alternative-fuel shuttles.
