Last August, the executive lowered the room temperature to 19 degrees due to fears of energy and electricity shortages in the wake of the Ukraine war.
The danger of a shortage has now eased, the government justified the return to normal temperature in a statement. With the room temperature of 21 degrees, the state administration is based on the recommendation of the Swiss Association of Engineers and Architects and its SIA standard.
On the other hand, other energy and electricity saving measures will remain in place in the Principality for the time being. For example, the lighting of buildings and monuments that serves purely aesthetic purposes is restricted or switched off completely.
