Energy efficiency


Retailer puts store in energy saving


Sainsbury’s showcased one of the most energy efficient food retail outlets in the country last month when it unveiled its new store in King’s Lynn, Norfolk. Kitted out with a range of green tech- nologies, the store features 1,000 solar panels on its roof while ground source heat pumps under the car park utilise geo- exchange technology to provide heating requirements.


The wooden structure of the building’s frame is sustainably sourced, and gen- erates 30% less heat due to its natural insulation. Natural refrigeration for fridges and freezers will reduce carbon emissions by 33% while rainwater harvesting and


water saving measures will cut water consumption by half.


Store manager Chris Pardoe said the store had been built to reduce its impact on the environment and will help con- tribute to the company’s overall envi-


ronmental target of reducing its carbon emissions by 30% by 2020.


The store is also equipped with com- prehensive customer recycling facilities and will operate a zero food waste to landfill policy.
