MADRID, 1 Ago. (EUROPA PRESS) -

The Government will approve this Monday a package of urgent measures for energy efficiency and saving, as announced at a press conference last Friday by the President of the Government, Pedro Sánchez.

The President of the Government did not specify the measures, although he did guarantee that they will not mean "cuts" in the supply for families and industry, assuring that they will also be beneficial, since they will translate into "savings in the electricity bill and in the competitiveness of the industry".

Specifically, the decree on energy saving measures that the Government plans to approve this Monday extends the temperature standards that are already applied in the Administration bodies to public transport, work centers, shops and businesses facing the public.

This regulation establishes that the temperature of the air conditioning in summer may not be less than 27 degrees, while the heating may not exceed 19 degrees.

This package has already been discussed between the ministries involved, led by the Ecological Transition and the Demographic Challenge, "with the private sector and parliamentary groups," Sánchez added.

"Saving energy is everyone's task and it is a priority," said the President of the Government, stressing that reducing the energy bill contributes "to reducing dependence on the aggressor, Putin, and bending the inflation curve."

The measure is expected to enter into force immediately, but it will have to be validated by the Congress of Deputies in a maximum of 30 days as it is a decree.

On the other hand, Sánchez also announced that Spain will bring to Brussels next September two proposals to reform the electricity market: one to decouple the price of gas from that of electricity, and a new intervention in the energy market to put a limit on the price of CO2 emissions.

The President of the Government assured that these two measures "will help bend the inflation curve and will help Spain, its companies and industries, but also Europe".

Regarding the reform of the electricity market, a measure on which the Spanish Government has been insisting in recent times in Brussels, Sánchez considered that now may be the time to address it, since the European Commission has opened up to a "debate that denied until recently" for it. "We hope this is the good one, for the good of Spain and Europe," he said.

Sánchez insisted that Spain is a "solidarity" country, as was shown at this week's Energy Ministers' meeting in Brussels to address possible limitations on gas consumption for this winter, but stressed that the Government is going to do what is necessary to "protect families, companies and the path of economic growth in which we are advancing".
