IKEA reaches for net positive energy status in the next four years

IKEA reaches for net positive energy status in the next four years

plans to hit its net positive energy goal within four years. Currently, IKEA generates around 53 percent of the energy it uses from renewable sources , primarily wind and solar. The retailer has 314 wind turbines, and has installed 700,000 solar panels to date on its stores and distribution hubs. Energy production varies by location.

IKEA’s Canadian wind farm generates more than double the energy the retail chain uses there.
