Spain limits air conditioning in public buildings to save energy

MADRID, SPAIN: According to a government rule on energy efficiency, office air conditioning should be set no lower than 27 degrees Celsius (80.6 degrees Fahrenheit) during the hottest months of the year.

Summer temperatures in Spain can exceed 40 degrees Celsius.

During the winter, offices shall be kept at a maximum temperature of 19 degrees Celsius.

According to the regulation, these steps would be implemented “whenever technically viable.”

The directive calls for more government officials to work from home, more energy-efficient lighting, and widespread installation of solar panels on public building rooftops.

The initiative, which is part of an EU-wide drive to reduce reliance on Russian gas and oil, calls for extra bicycle parking spaces to be installed at government offices to encourage public employees to pedal to work.

The European Commission announced plans on Tuesday to reduce the EU’s reliance on Russian gas by two-thirds this year and to cease its reliance on Russian fuel supply before 2030.

In April, Italy too announced intentions to reduce air conditioning in public buildings in order to save energy this summer.
