TimesOnline reports that McDonald's experimental Chicago store uses 25% less energy than an "average" McDonald’s, and that the company is looking to apply what it has learned to more of its restaurants. "The potential savings could be huge, given that the company has 14,000 restaurants in America and 31,000 in total."
