The Vending Machine That Uses (Almost) No Power

Called the ‘A011 Peak Shift’, the vending machine cools products only during the night instead of the daytime—to take advantage of the surplus power capacity at night.

The machine is also made with airtight doors and insulation materials, to prevent cold air from escaping and reduce the impact of outside temperature.

Currently, the machines are being tested at Saitama Prefecture’s Kumagaya City and Gifu Prefecture’s Tajimi City.

According to Coca-Cola, the A011 can reduce daytime energy use by 95%.
