Tesco Lotus, Bangkok, Thailand

 

In Thailand, Tesco Lotus has spent £3.1 million on energy conservation at 49 stores over the last three years, which has resulted in energy savings of approximately £2 million so far. At our new flagship ‘green’ store in Bangkok, solar panels the area of three football pitches cover more than half of the roof. These provide 12.5% of the store’s energy consumption and save 400 tonnes of carbon dioxide. It is the largest rooftop solar energy system in the region. Even the benches at the front of the store are made of photo-voltaic panels. Tesco Lotus is evaluating the success of this scheme and hopes to introduce similar measures in new stores.
