Morrisons’ Eco Store


UK supermarket chain Morrisons has started work on a new sustainable store in Peterborough, England. Expected to be the first European supermarket to be lit entirely by LED lights and one of the first to use an energy-efficient hydrocarbon-based refrigeration system, the 13,654 ft store will be a pioneering beacon of green retail in many ways.

Additional features include solar power and north-facing skylights to allow natural light into the building. There will also be charging points for electric cars and rainwater collection for toilet systems.

Morrisons is investing £9.5 million into the design and construction of the new store in the hope that it will achieve a BREEAM (the world’s leading design and assessment method for sustainable buildings) rating of excellence.
