The Vice-President and Councillor for Energy Transition of the Balearic Islands Government, Juan Pedro Yllanes, took part this Monday, along with the Councillor for Economic Model, Tourism and Employment, Iago Negueruela, and the Director General of Trade, Miquel Piñol, in the Energy Sector Conference convened by the Government in the presence of the Minister for Energy Transition, Teresa Ribera, and the Minister of Industry, Trade and Tourism, Reyes Maroto.

For his part, the Regional Minister for the Economic Model, Tourism and Employment, Iago Negueruela, indicated at the end of the Sectoral Conference that the Regional Ministry defends all the measures promoted by the State Government, given that they are actions of general interest and of great importance for dealing with energy management given the current situation and context.

Negueruela also asked the different political parties to stop partisan politics when dealing with state issues, as in this case.

In any case, the Councillor for Tourism also recalled that it was made clear at the time, and is now being reiterated, that when there are workers in the workplace, prevention prevails. For this reason, and in the case of temperature limits, the energy saving plan will be applied in the same way as Royal Decree 486/1997 on minimum health and safety provisions in State Government workplaces and, in particular, those measures included in the case of non-sedentary workplaces.

This treatment is identical both for the catering sector and for hotel restaurants and their common areas. Negueruela reminds us that the state regulation grants accommodation rooms the status of a home.

For all these reasons, Negueruela has indicated that the regulation is clear and that the criticisms made are only made to attack the measures of the State Government, without providing positive solutions to tackle the current energy situation.
