A fresh approach: New Aldi supermarket in Waterford uses 100% green energy
A new energy efficient supermarket- powered by 100% green electricity has just opened its doors county Waterford.
Aldi’s store on the Strand Road in Tramore has been designed to be more eco-friendly through its ‘Project Fresh’ store initiative. This involves the installation of energy-efficient hi-spec fixtures, fittings and signage all of which are being powered by 100% wind-generated energy.
The Tramore store’s opening is part of Aldi’s €160m investment across its Irish store network and will see the creation of 14 jobs locally. It’s Aldi’s sixth store in county Waterford.
The Tramore store is part of 20 new Aldi supermarkets being built as part of €100m plan. The German supermarket giant has also committed a further €60 million to revamp the layout and design of all its stores nationwide as part of Project Fresh.
Aldi has invested heavily in improving its energy management systems and its entire store network is now powered by 100% wind-generated energy. Aldi was the second retailer in Ireland to achieve ISO 50001 accreditation for its efforts to improve energy efficiencies.
