This Tuesday the first Council of Ministers took place after the summer holidays and this Wednesday the parliamentary course begins in Congress, marking the political strategy of the opposition: the frontal clash with the Government in any field. The leader of the Popular Party, Alberto Núñez Feijóo, does not give even a day of respite. His political background has already confirmed its vote against the energy saving decree which will be validated on Thursday, and will request the appearance of up to seven ministers to request explanations for the wave of fires, the employment data, the CNI, the drought, and the train incident in Bejís.
The rise in energy prices, the war in Ukraine - which is now in its sixth month - and the threat that Russia will close the gas tap this winter, have once again put self-consumption in the focus of private consumers in Spain. Some 150,000 solar panels are installed in the country, and the forecast is to reach 14 GW of self-consumption in 2030, but that objective could be advanced due to the current situation.
