MOSCOW, August 26 – PRIME. In France, everything will be in order with gas in the coming winter, President Emmanuel Macron is sure.
Earlier it was reported that France became the fifth country of the European Union, where underground storage facilities are filled with gas by more than 90%.
Macron noted that the country has diversified gas supplies, secured energy reserves, and is working on a new terminal in Le Havre.
Therefore, everything will be fine with the French with gas this winter,” the French leader said.
At the end of July, French Cabinet spokesman Olivier Veran said that France was in an “unprecedentedly difficult” situation in terms of electricity generation. The French government has already taken a number of drastic measures to save energy. So, for this purpose, the country expanded the ban on illuminated advertising, and shops were forbidden to keep the doors open when the air conditioner or heating system is running. Retail outlets must turn off illuminated signs and air ventilation at night, dim lighting by 50% before customers arrive, and by 30% during normal hours in case of a critical level of power consumption. The government also urged citizens, despite the intense heat, not to abuse the air conditioners.
