Netto bets on solar and heat pumps: German discount supermarket chain Netto says it will invest almost €100 million on ensuring sustainable operations of its stores and logistics centers in the country. Part of the plan is to install rooftop solar plants for more than a 100 stores and logistics centers of the company. Over the next 3 years, it will remove gas heaters, replacing these with heat pumps in some 300 stores while also installing new climate-neutral refrigerated shelves and doors for refrigeration and freezer systems. “The current energy situation with rising prices and high dependence on Russia increases the pressure to switch to significantly more energy-efficient solutions in our markets,” said Ingo Panknin, CEO of Netto Deutschland and member of the Executive Board of the Salling Group. “For this reason, the entire Salling Group, including Netto Germany, decided to push ahead with the investments.”
