Being smart and environmental with waste

Sainsbury’s has switched on a smart grid system using green products and innovative technology.

The system at the new store in Hythe, Kent, will use power from waste oil and fat which will feed into a bio fuel generator.

The system monitors the National Grid and activates a generator when there is an increased demand for electricity at peak usage times. Additional technology within the store will reduce strain on the grid further by deactivating or reducing the store’s heating, ventilation and light systems at peak times.

Overall this type of environmental approach will enable the company to reduce emissions and save costs. Property director has said, “We are absolutely committed to introducing experimental carbon-reducing innovations such as this”.
