New practice in France: Shops running air conditioners will be banned from keeping their doors open

According to the news in the French press, Minister of Ecological Transformation Agnes Pannier-Runacher said that they will publish 2 decrees on energy saving in the coming days.

In order to prevent energy waste, air-conditioned businesses in France will be required to keep their doors closed or face fines, a minister announced on Sunday.

According to France’s Minister of Ecological Transition Agnes Pannier-Runacher, leaving the doors open when the air conditioner is running results in “20 percent extra usage and… it’s crazy.”

There are also proposals, according to the minister, to limit the usage of lighted signage.

According to Pannier-Runacher, who spoke to the Journal du Dimanche newspaper, “In the coming days, I will publish two decrees: the first will broaden the prohibition on lighted advertising, regardless of the size of the city, between 1 am and 6 am,” with the exception of airports and stations.

“The second will ban shops from having their doors open while the air conditioning and heating are working”.

Some cities in France — which like other parts of Europe has been gripped by a heatwave recently — passed municipal by-laws in July, imposing fines for offending air-conditioned shops.

The government now plans to extend this to the whole country, with a fine of up to 750 euros ($766) — but will emphasise the education of shopkeepers in the first instance.
