Energy consumption has been reduced by 15% due to reduction in industrial gas demand
Spain You will not be forced to reduce your energy consumption further To cope with the European demand control agreement as long as current consumption is maintained. From this they say enagásThe technical manager of the gas system, whose calculation shows that Decline in demand for industrial gas and electricity exports Neighboring countries voluntarily meet the target of reducing demand by 15%. The government has also accepted this thesis and has already considered the objective met.
A solidarity agreement signed by the twenty-seven to jointly address their energy needs and thus face a winter without Russian gas, Includes a voluntary reduction in consumption by 15%. This value was set as a recommendation, but will become mandatory if storage targets are threatened or supply to households and industries is threatened.
A month and a half before the end of the year, Spain has already met this reduction target. For Susana de Pablos, CEO of Enagás, it is because of this “Dramatic” reduction in gas consumption by large industries -which in October was 34% less than the previous year-, as mentioned in the Gas Industrial Forum organized by the Gas Industrial Association.
Exports are counted as contribution
“Yes total demand today What the combined cycles are generating will be subtracted To export electricity to France and Portugal, which itself is a measure of unity, demand will be 15% below the average of the last five years (the rule set by Brussels to calculate this reduction), with Demand restrictions are no longer required to comply with regulations“, he assured.
De Pablos added that both countries have On several occasions, it has declared an emergency for its power sectors, it is argued that the government has also replicated so that Brussels acknowledges that Spain has shown solidarity with its neighbors and fulfilled its obligations. in fact, Spain has spent months trying to ease the tense energy situation in PortugalIt depends on hydropower plants and France, to which it sends energy due to the poor condition of its nuclear park, during the year with little rainfall.
This is possible due to Regasification potential of the Spanish gas system, which is equivalent to 44% of the whole of Europe with six plants spread along the coast and one in El Mousel (Gijón) which has been operating since January. On the part of the government, he also defends the success of the measures implemented in the framework of the Greater Energy Security Scheme, which had caused much controversy.
Relief for Govt
Suppose the fulfillment of this objective is a An important relief for Pedro Sánchez’s cabinet, joined the wave of condemnation after announcing the first package of measures aimed at reducing consumption. Yesterday she was president of the Community of Madrid, ISABEL DIAZ AYUSOWho said “Madrid doesn’t go out” because part of the capital’s tourist attraction at this time lies in its Christmas lights.
According to executive statistics, The decline in domestic demand has already reached 19%, compared to consumption levels over the past five years for the same period beginning in August. During this period, electricity demand has decreased by 5.7% overall and also meets the target of 10%. According to the Ministry of Environmental Transition, this confirms that “Spain is working in solidarity with the rest of the EU”.
As has already happened with the application of the ‘Iberian exception’, the Sánchez executive managed to reduce the demands of Spain and Portugal to Brussels. Thus, the European Commission included a provision reducing it A reduction of up to 7% for countries less dependent on Russian gasor which form “energy islands” because of their resources or geographic location.
