The eco-friendly design, developed in cooperation with Wirsol Solar AG, utilizes renewable energy to power one-third of the restaurant's energy consumption, thus reducing energy costs by 45 percent and the emission of carbon dioxide (CO2) by more than 120(1) metric tons every year. A solar-powered electric vehicle charging station for hybrid cars has also been included.
Commenting, Jonathan Fitzpatrick, senior vice president franchise operations for Burger King Corporations Europe, Middle East and Africa region said: "This new energy-efficient restaurant uses renewable energy systems, such as solar photovoltaics and wind turbines that are estimated to save nearly half of this restaurant's yearly electricity costs. Implementing these new green energy systems reduces the environmental impact and is another step in our ongoing commitment to our BK Positive Steps(R) corporate responsibility program."
