New Airconditioning Rules in Spain - New Energy Saving Measures. Last week the Spanish Government approved energy saving measures which, in some cases, will be in force from midnight Tuesday 9th August until 1st November 2023 and will affect all premises open to the public such as offices, shops, bars, restaurants and public transport systems and transport centres.
These rules are part of Spain's drive to cut its gas use by 7% under a recent European Union deal to reduce their dependency on Russian gas supplies.
With Spain currently experiencing a very hot summer, with temperatures above 40ºc in some areas, many in the tourism sector have criticised these new measures.
The government state that the measures "will not only save energy but will also bring down bills for households and businesses".
The most important rules are as follows:-
TEMPERATURES: From Wednesday, all businesses using air conditioning systems must ensure that the air temperature is set at a minimum of 27ºc This may vary slightly depending on the activity and the health and safety regulations in force such as certain activities in the hospitality sector in which 25ºc is the limit, hairdressers, gyms, laundrettes, schools, playschools amongst others.
Stores will be required to keep their doors shut to maintain temperatures..
New Airconditioning Rules in Spain
Temperatures will be set at a maximum of 19ºc
Doors and windows to be kept closed when equipment in use.
In both cases the relative air humidity should be kept between 30% and 70%.
Temperature and humidity monitor must be installed in order to ensure compliance.
LIGHTING: All shopfront lighting must be switched off by 22.00.
SIGNS: Signs or screens must be on show at the entrance of the premises or building indicating information on temperature, humidity levels and other measures taken to ensure the reduction in energy usage.
DOORS: All premises that use air con and/ or heating and that have direct access from the street must have a self-closing door mechanism. This must be in place by 1st October.
Tourists can continue to keep their hotel rooms chilled, as they are considered to be "private spaces", but all other public areas will have to abide by new laws.

Mobility Scooter Rules - Benidorm, July 2022 We all know how popular mobility scooters are here in Benidorm but these can cause problems for other pedestrians and motorists, and after numerous complaints from drivers and pedestrians in Benidorm, the town hall has announced tighter controls in the face of multiple breaches on public roads.
Municipal sources calculate that in the city more than 500 motorized chairs are marketed daily.
The Department of Mobility of Benidorm City Council, hand in hand with the Local Police, have intensified control over the rental and use of personal mobility vehicles and a campaign has been put into operation to cover two problems: To inform the establishments that are responsible for the rental of these vehicles and to do the same with users, making sure they know the rules in place.
The mayor recalled that Benidorm was "one of the first municipalities in Spain" to regulate the rental and circulation of this type of vehicle and translate it into a municipal ordinance, to insure "the greatest guarantees of safety for all road users, mainly pedestrians".
Benidorm Mobility Scooter Rules
Rental of Mobility Scooters
The ordinance establishes that the rental of these self-propelled wheelchairs (mobility scooters) is limited to people with accredited mobility problems and with disabilities, you should be asked to show either a blue badge or a letter of need from your GP or those who are over 55 years old. Failure to comply with the regulations could result in a fine of up to 500 euros.
Users - Mobility and Scooter users.
The misuse of these vehicles, which circulate at speeds higher than allowed or on footpaths where they are prohibited (scooters), causes numerous complaints from drivers and users and damage to pavements etc
The ordinance generally prohibits these vehicles from circulating on the sidewalks, except in the cases of people with reduced mobility or functional diversity who may do so at a maximum speed of 4 kilometres per hour, the average speed of pedestrians.
The Local Police are in charge of informing and reminding users of the content of the ordinance, emphasizing where these vehicles can circulate and the speeds at which they can do so, and serious infractions can once again lead to fines of up to 500 euros.
These personal mobility vehicles cannot circulate on the bike lanes located on the sidewalks, but they can circulate on the road, on single-platform streets where the passage of vehicles is authorized, they may circulate at a maximum speed of 20 kilometres per hour, as well as on the road respecting that same speed; while only the smallest skates will be able to travel through the parks.
Scooter Users (Not Mobility) - All users of this type of vehicle are obliged to drive with a helmet and with civil liability insurance these must not be ridden on footpaths.
Remember - The municipal laws that cover their use, allow for fines of 500€ for misuse of the vehicles.
In Summary: Our Understanding of the law is
Neither Mobility Scooters nor Stand Up Scooters may be used in Bike Lanes
Stand Up Scooters are restricted to the Road only. A helmet must be worn and there is a maximum speed of 20km per hour
Mobility Scooters may be used on Footpaths but with a maximum speed of 4km per hour. They may be used on Roads with a maximum speed of 20km per hour. The exception to this is if the bike lane is on the footpath, then they may only be used on the road.
