In Spain, traders will now have to carefully adjust the thermostat. The Spanish government has already adopted restrictions on air conditioning and heating in shops, cultural venues, and transportation. The measures were announced on Monday, August 1, following a recent EU plan to limit Russian gas imports.

“Heating should be kept at a maximum of 19 degrees in the winter and at least 27 degrees in the summer.” In the places concerned, the Minister of Environmental Transformation, Teresa Ribera, announced at the conclusion of the extraordinary Cabinet. These actions will be applied “To commercial and cultural venues, to large warehouses (…) and to transportation infrastructure, such as airports or train stations.” Lights in shop windows and lights in public buildings should also be turned off when not in use.

These actions, which are part of the energy saving plan, will be required within a week. This package of measures also obliges air-conditioned or heated buildings open to the public to close their doors to avoid heat waste, and to review their thermal installations if this has not been the case since January 2021. Teleworking will also be encouraged in the private sector when it allows energy savings.

Spain had already taken several measures at the end of May to reduce the energy bill in public buildings, as part of efforts demanded by Brussels to end European dependence on Russian gas. Thus, teleworking of civil servants is already encouraged in order to limit the air conditioning in public buildings where the thermostat for air conditioners is already set at 27 degrees, and the radiator to 19 degrees.
