Walgreen's Net Zero Energy Store

Session 2 Paper 1, CIBSE ASHRAE Technical Symposium, Dublin, Ireland, 3-4 April 2014

 

The Walgreens Company, a global retail pharmacy brand with over 8,000 stores, set out with a vision to create a showcase for innovative, sustainable, high-performance design at a retail location without altering the operational characteristics of the building in order to make it as highly-scalable as possible, and to share this information with the sustainability, architecture, and retail communities in a completely transparent fashion as a means of encouraging the adoption of green building practices wherever reasonably feasible.

The store is expected to achieve net-zero energy use by the U.S. Department of Energy’s most stringent standard (building footprint) at 200,000 kWh consumed and 240,000 kWh produced. Additionally the project is on track to earn USGBC LEED Platinum, Green Globes, Living Building Challenge, and U.S. EPA Green Chill Platinum.
