About AETN The workshop is organised by the EPSRC funded Airport Energy Technologies Network (AETN), which was founded in 2008 to develop the low carbon energy research community and its links with the key industrial and commercial players in the Airport, Airline and Aeronautical industries. The Network participants are conducting research projects which represent high value to commerce and industry in terms of energy efficiency, reduced emissions, and compliance with future operating practices and legislation.
