Tesco Hope to Reduce Energy Consumption by 30% with Fully LED Store

Tesco is set to open its first ever Express supermarket in which all light bulbs have been replaced with low energy LED lights. Tesco expect that using LED bulbs will create a 30 percent drop in energy consumption.

The store in Loughborough has used LEDs to replace the bulbs in all external signs, lighting on the sales floor and in the backroom staff areas, and in the cold rooms, fridges, and freezers. The only place to remain using conventional bulbs is the bakery oven, where it was found that temperatures were too high for the LEDs to function.

Emmily Sjölander, the environmental programme manager at Tesco, said that “we have recognised that through the use of LED light fittings we can dramatically reduce energy usage, particularly at Express stores due to their smaller size and lower ceiling height. If this delivers the energy savings we have estimated, it is likely that we would replicate this lighting system at other stores.”

That could see the LEDs installed across Tesco’s entire network of 2,700 stores, and create a huge cost saving.

Tesco has set itself the target of achieving carbon neutrality by 2050, and these LEDs will help it move along that path. They have also opened several flagship ‘zero carbon’ stores in Cambridgeshire, Lincolnshire, Powys, and Dublin, Wrexham.
