The war between Russia and Ukraine has accentuated this scenario and in this sense the Portuguese government is preparing to move forward with mandatory energy saving measures in residential buildings, commerce, transport and industry.

The plan should be revealed at the end of the month and will serve to increase gas reserves in winter.

Under the plan, the Association ZERO immediately proposes to reduction of consumption in public lighting. The Association states that the lights of monuments should be turned off whenever possible, without jeopardizing safety issues.

In the case of commerce and public buildings, attention should be paid to the way in which the air conditioning is carried out - it should not exceed 18ºC in winter and in summer it should not fall below 25ºC.
