Title: The Wal-Mart Experience, Part Two

Abstract

In 2005, Wal-Mart opened major experimental stores in McKinney, Texas, and Aurora, Colo. These two stores incorporate several experiments using recycled materials and energy-saving technologies. Over the three-year period from 2006-2008, the performance of the experiments will be evaluated and lessons learned generated. The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) is monitoring the Colorado stores, and the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) is monitoring the Texas stores. The construction and evaluation of these stores are part of a commitment to sustainability by Wal-Mart. The evaluation also includes monitoring typical Wal-Mart supercenters for a reference case in close proximity to the experimental stores.
