Title: McDonald’s EE-Tec Energy efficiency restaurant
Unique worldwide, McDonald’s energy efficiency restaurant was opened in April 2009. This restaurant will serve as a testbed for new and alternative technologies as well as green energy strategies. The fully operational restaurant will field test these options for future implementation in other restaurants. Alternative sources include solar, geothermal and wind energy. The project aims to reduce CO2 emissions and energy consumption. The project partner is the Eco Institute of Freiburg, which will draw a balance from measurements over one year of operation.
