Tesco opens first zero-carbon supermarket

Tesco opened what it is calling the world’s first zero-carbon supermarket in the English town of Ramsey, according to Cambridge Newspapers.

The new store includes a frame made from sustainable timber and special skylights to allow natural light in without adding to the heat. Vents control natural airflow to reduce energy, and the power the store does need is created by an on-site generator that runs on renewable sources such as vegetable oil.
