. The weather service in Spain has said temperatures could hit heatwave status. A spokesperson said: "It cannot be ruled out that it will end up being classified as a heatwave, especially in the south-west of the peninsula, although it will not be as extraordinary as that of mid-July." Pedro Sanchez, Spain's Prime Minister, has called on workers to get rid of ties in the heat. New measures also include no store lights on after 10pm - though street lights will remain on. Doors must be closed in shops and heating systems will be checked more often for efficiency. The new bill is an effort to reduce Spain's gas consumption by 7%. It's in line with EU energy agreements to limit dependency on Russian gas. Spanish Ecological Transition Minister Teresa Ribera said the measures would be maintained until at least November 2023. It is hoped the new measures will save energy and bring down bills for businesses and households.
