October 14, 2008

British supermarket giant Tesco has opened the first eco store of its kind in Ireland

The new shop will use an estimated 45 per cent less energy than a comparable supermarket, and will deliver new jobs more than 90.

The eco store at Ballycarnane in Tramore will save 420 tonnes of carbon dioxide a year, resulting in a 30 per cent annual reduction.

The store will feature the highest levels of insulation in the building and recycle more than 70 per cent of the heat used in the store’s ventilation system.

Moreover, The building will feature a wooden frame with timber earned from sustainable forests.

There will be skylights to increase the level of natural light entering the store, while solar panels contribute towards powering the bank of cash registers. Also, an environmentally friendly carbon dioxide refrigeration system will be adapted to all refrigerators.
