In this way, he is reacting to the proposal for cost-saving measures in public buildings, which was approved by the government in September. TASR was informed about this by the spokeswoman of the department, Zuzana Eliášová.

“For example, we have reduced the heating temperature to an acceptable level, and at the same time, employees have been instructed not to use unnecessary electrical appliances at their workplaces. The installation of reflective panels behind the radiators and the unnecessary non-illumination of the exterior of the buildings is also in the process.” brought closer by Minister of the Interior Roman Mikulec (OĽANO).

The department also plans long-term activities to increase energy savings, such as hydraulically regulate thermal systems, insulate thermal distributions or install thermoregulation heads. At the same time, he advised the employees, whose nature of work allows it, to schedule their working hours from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. with the aim of making maximum use of daylight in the winter season.


The material with proposals for measures to reduce energy consumption in public administration is from the workshop of the Ministry of the Environment. It contains a total of 13 measures. These are to be combined by individual public administration bodies according to their specific conditions. Each office must achieve a reduction in energy consumption of at least 15 percent between October 1, 2022 and April 30, 2023, compared to the period from October 2019 to April 2020.
