Coca-Cola Japan Launches 'Power Shifting' Energy-Saving Vending Machine

Coca-Cola (Japan) Co., Ltd. recently announced what it called the most innovative vending machine in these past 50 years, "peak shift vending machines." The peak shift vending machine shifts the use of power for cooling from the general daytime peak demand period to nighttime, when relatively less strain is placed on the power supply. In summer, these machines can provide cooled products for 16 hours while reducing daytime power consumption by 95 percent. Power consumption is also reduced in winter by 20 percent compared to current vending machines and, combined with power consumed for cooling, these vending machines are a global forerunner that can reduce power consumption by 68 percent, according to the company.
