Car-free Sundays? IEA sets out 10-point plan to reduce global oil demand – theguardian
Energy watchdog says measures could help cut oil usage by 2.7m barrels a day within four months
Driving more slowly, turning down the air-conditioning, car free Sundays and working from home should be adopted as emergency measures to reduce the global demand for oil, according to a 10-point plan from the International Energy Agency (IEA).
Such measures and changes to consumer behaviour would allow the world to cut its oil usage by 2.7m barrels per day (bpd) within four months – equivalent to more than half of Russia’s exports – the global energy watchdog said.
