Preparing for winter


The Danish Energy Agency made 30 proposals on how the public system can reduce energy consumption (heat and electricity) during the winter months. 

  • The temperature inside will be reduced from 22-23 degrees to 19-20 degrees. 
  • According to experts, 19 degrees is the lowest temperature that you tolerate to be able to work in front of a computer. Anything under 19 degrees, will mean using gloves while typing. 
  • The Danish Working Environment Authority says that 18 degrees is the lowest acceptable temperature. 
  • The public system means public institutions, schools, police stations, etc. The hospitals are exempt from the proposal. 
  • The hot water for hand washing in toilets will be closed; The maximum temperature in showers will be reduced. 
  • More people will be encouraged to work from home.
