Spain has announced new energy-saving measures, including limits on air conditioning and heating temperatures in public buildings and large commercial buildings, as it becomes the latest European country to seek to reduce its energy consumption and its dependence on Russian oil and gas. From a report: Under a decree which comes into effect in seven days and applies to public buildings, shopping centres, cinemas, theatres, train stations and airports, heating must not be set above 19C (66.2F) and air conditioning should not be set below 27C (80.6F). The doors must be closed so as not to waste energy and the lights in the windows must be turned off after 10 p.m. Relevant premises will be required to display signs or screens explaining energy saving initiatives. Although Spain is not as dependent on Russian energy supplies as many other EU countries, it has accepted a 7-8% reduction in its gas consumption. The measures, which were published in Tuesday’s edition of the official state newspaper, will remain in effect until November 2023.”[This] presents a series of measures to save energy and use it more efficiently, which are urgent and necessary when it comes to reducing energy consumption in general and reducing our dependence on energy outside the Spanish economy,” the decree reads.
