The Penny market is located in the city of Kolín in Czech Republic, around 70km in the east of its beautiful capital city Prague. The store is completely new and just opened at the beginning of March 2022.
Penny always puts a high focus on the customer: besides a wide range of products and affordable prices, they want to create an environment for the customer which is as efficient and sustainable as possible.
Refrigeration technology as the main consumer of energy in a supermarket
For Penny as for many other food retailers refrigeration technology consumes most electricity in a Food Retail store. When looking for a green technology with reduced energy consumption and CO2 footprint, it all began at EuroShop 2020 in Düsseldorf where Penny visited the Viessmann exhibition stand and was introduced to the sustainable energy solution ESyCool green.
