IKEA Canberra to be powered entirely by renewable energy

IKEA Australia's sustainability manager Richard Wilson says the company plans to be using 100 per cent renewable energy by 2020.

The Canberra store will be the most sustainable and energy efficient IKEA in Australia with nearly 2000 solar panels, thick insulation, LED lights, and airlock revolving doors to retain comfortable temperatures throughout the year.

The solar panels are on the store's roof will produce enough energy to power 100 per cent of the store, or 106 family homes.

"What we expect is in the heights of summer when you get the long daylight hours is it will fully power the store," Mr Wilson said.
