In this post, we present remote work as a solution to the energy-saving measures. Since the European scenario marked by the war in Ukraine. And the threat of Russia a gas supply cut caused Europe’s adoption of energy-saving measures.
In addition to the agreement of the EU-27 on a 15% cut in spending to guarantee supply throughout the winter. Countries such as Germany, France, Greece, and Spain are already taking action and establishing guidelines that affect trade, industry, and households. Governments are trying to be proactive by implementing remote work as a solution to the energy-saving measures.
Among the proposals is a mandatory reduction of electricity consumption at peak times or limiting windfall profits for infra-marginal. And fossil fuel power generators but postponing a cap on gas imports.
These measures affect those countries with colder climates. The most since, in addition to the high prices of gas and other fuels, the ban on turning up the heating to more than 19ºC will not help them to cope with the winter.
In this sense, remote work is a great help in this situation. It can reduce consumption in an aggregate way, especially by car travel.
Although it is not included in the decree of saving measures, the third vice-president Teresa Ribera, recovered remote work as a recommendation for all public administrations and “big companies” in the face of the current energy crisis derived from the war in Ukraine.
And the help of remote work to energy saving measures does not stop there. For the Nordic countries, it means being able to telework from other countries with warmer climates. In this sense, UbiWork is the perfect platform to find accommodation adapted to telework from incredible locations with unbeatable climates in countries like Spain and Portugal.
