In “Guide to Preserving and Rationing Energy Consumption”, a pamphlet published on its website, the ministry urges the public to try to use energy optimally using high energy efficiency devices and equipment.

Studies suggest that 20–21°C is a comfortable temperature in the winter season during the day, and that raising this temperature by just 1°C leads to a more than 5 percent increase in fuel consumption, the guide said.

The guide also called for periodic maintenance of heating systems, which may help reduce the amount of diesel consumed by about 5 percent. The ministry suggested that boilers should undergo routine maintenance at least once a year.
