On Wednesday, 21 September 2022, the City of Luxembourg presented the energy-saving measures that have been adopted by the College of the Mayor and Aldermen to reduce energy use in municipal buildings and facilities, as well as in public spaces. In doing so, the City will be contributing to the efforts undertaken by national administrations, businesses and residents to reduce natural gas consumption by 15% over the reference period (1 August 2022 to 31 March 2023) in order to secure Luxembourg's energy supply.
Based on the results of a detailed analysis conducted by the City's departments, various measures that would significantly reduce energy consumption have been identified, and either have already been implemented or will be in the near future.
Message from Mayor Lydie Polfer
Readers are reminded that an energy allowance was voted on and approved at the municipal council meeting on 28 March 2022, further to the rise in energy prices at the beginning of the year. As such, anyone residing in Luxembourg City who received the State-funded energy allowance is entitled to the municipal energy allowance. The amount of the allowance is the same as the State-funded allowance, ranging from €200 to €400 depending on the size of the household. The College of Aldermen is aware of the potential impact of future rises in energy prices, and is looking at further ways of supporting Luxembourg City residents.
