Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouly announced on Wednesday that government employees who were mandated to work from home on Sunday in August to save energy will return to work from the office in September.

The work-from-home mandate, which was implemented to ease loads on the electric grid of the country, applied to all government employees who do not provide direct services to the public.

Extremely high temperatures in July prompted the government to implement a system of scheduled power cuts nationwide in order to reduce the pressure on the natural gas network that feeds power plants.  

PM Madbouly had previously noted that electricity cuts of one or two hours may continue until the second or third week in September to rationalise electricity consumption.
