Waitrose to switch to electric heat pump technology in stores

Waitrose is to make its shops more energy efficient as it looks to combat rising energy prices and reach its goal of net zero emissions by 2035.

The supermarket is switching its in-store heating from fossil fuel to electric heat pumps that are powered by zero-carbon renewable energy.

In addition to the net-zero target, Waitrose has also committed to reducing its energy consumption by 25% by 2028 by focusing on energy efficiency projects over the coming years.

Neil Coleman, operations manager, energy and innovation for the John Lewis Partnership, said: “No business is immune to rising energy costs. We’ve already set an ambitious plan to reduce our energy consumption and reach our goal of net zero emissions by 2035. With energy prices rising, we’re accelerating this. We’re focusing on heat recovery solutions and thermal efficiency to help lower the general heating and cooling load of our buildings.”

Waitrose will also be combining the heat pumps with upgraded refrigeration systems to allow heat recovery to generate further efficiency.
