Airports play a pivotal role in the global air transport industry. The increase in passenger and air cargo traffic has led to increase of energy requirements. Airports have introduced a wide range of energy saving procedures. Solar technology is growing rapidly at airports. Solar energy reduces the airport operating costs, and has environmental benefits such as cleaner air and fewer greenhouse gases. Building Information Modeling “BIM” is a software tool that uses a relational database with a behavioral model to represent the building information dynamically. Using BIM helps with the urgent aspects of sustainability design, e.g., solar analysis. Also, BIM can perform yearly sun studies to define when the building is provided with natural shading. Furthermore, BIM can then reduce the capacity of cooling systems, and explaining the building is exceeding the baseline building energy requirements. This paper aims to reduce the energy consumption by proposing the installation of renewable energy Photovoltaic “PV” solar system. The performance is simulated by the Autodesk Revit, PVsyst software, and supported by theoretical calculations. The studied results can produce a high annual energy production of about 22,000 MWh/yr and reduce a considerable annual amount of carbon dioxide (CO₂), which represents 15,000 tons/yr
