1:05 am
energy minutes disagree the voluntary plans of their gas consumption by 15 percent starting in august, while the e. u says if it's fully cancel from rushing gas this winter, it could cost members states economies as much as 1.5 percent of g. d. p. stone that came, explains this coal being unloaded in the german town of linebarger is from russia party, one of the last consignments to germany before the embargo took hold. until recently, much of the energy used in germany came from russian fossil fuels. but now it's coal is banned, it's oil is soon to follow. and far less of its gas is being piped here than was planned, meaning across the country, much of industry is having to contemplate buying fossil fuels from elsewhere. i think there will be only a temporal return of the coal fired power plants to the market. so this is a no, not a long term solution. this is the solution for the next 3, maybe 4 years,
1:06 am
which is a significant contribution to solving the gas problem. or the security of supply problem, but it is not sustainable long term perspective. the difficulties of the german government is that many of its leaders has spent much of their political lives looking to phase out fossil fuels. and yet they now find themselves having to buy them in on a short term basis. b, as in the opinions we see how dependent we are on energy import from all over the world. and in this case, especially from russia, it's important to know that we and germany have technical abilities that are realistic and for his economically functioning jobs and economic value, which can help us free ourselves from this dependency and defend our own sovereignty upping his cuts. but saying that and doing that are 2 different things because very many power stations and industries have based their plans on an uninterrupted delivery of coal. and more often gas, such as here,

the learners aluminum foundry ins, all tal where rising gas prices mean managers are having to change their working practices almost visit us. so anyway, i walked so far starting up a foundry, luckys hitting up the furnace is very energy intensive. so shutting it down in the evening or overnight and then hitting it up again in the morning, is crazily expensive? that's why we now either run it around the clock in 3 ships or shut it off completely. the company that runs this power station decided to get out of a dependency on russian coal. soon after the war and ukraine began, their country took longer to follow suit, but has now done so, as it must be said, has the e u. but getting out of a dependence on russian gas is proving much more difficult. dominant cane al jazeera berlin in spain, they were planned blackouts and thermostat regulations. as part of voluntary consumption cut local say it's too hard to comply,

1:09 am
brussels. that's what i said, the money spain also has a commitment of solidarity with the rest of europe in countries. each country is free to choose the way in which we'll meet the commitment to cut energy use here in spain. that includes turning off the light perhaps other measures need to be found because i don't know up to what point turning off a shop window, display light is going to make much sabern that shop have to turn off window lights after 10 pm. however, street lighting will not be affected when i didn't know, but why would visitors come? because when you go out for a walk, what you want to see is joy soon. we won't have light. so if you decide to come to here and everything is switched off, you're going to ask yourself, what's the point? the measures will be reversed in winter when regulations will prohibit indoor areas not to be warmed above 27 degrees. leah harding al jazeera consumer
