As fears of energy tensions next winter grow, the executive wants to prepare people’s minds. On franceinfo this Tuesday morning, government spokesman Olivier Véran issued a new warning: “the time has come to change a number of our habits”.
“There will be an important step for the French,” he said, referring to “our energy sobriety roadmap presented by the Prime Minister at the very beginning of autumn, probably at the end of September, beginning of October”. “There will also be a communication campaign for the general public which will allow everyone to take ownership of fairly simple, fairly basic tools, which allow them to have a real impact”, he added. “I’ll just give an example: you don’t run a washing machine at 6 p.m. in the middle of winter. »
The emergency for winter joins the emergency for the planet
“You have a panel of 500, 600 measures that can have an impact on the planet and an impact on our energy consumption this winter, some concern the State or companies, others French people and on these measures, we want to look which are the most effective and which are the least harmful to the daily lives of French people, ”explained the spokesperson. “It is this work that is being carried out with experts and politicians and which will be presented to the French”, he added. “In this respect, the urgency of winter joins the urgency for the planet, (…) what is an absolute necessity to spend the winter in good conditions is also an absolute necessity to preserve a livable planet in the long term,” underlined Mr. Véran.
Prime Minister Elisabeth Borne on Monday urged companies to act to improve their energy sobriety, otherwise they would be the “first affected” by “rationing” measures in the coming months.
Emmanuel Macron will chair a Defense Council this Friday, with the theme of the energy crisis, while Engie announced that the Russian Gazprom was further reducing its gas deliveries from this Tuesday.
