Will this really be possible - F1 engine change

In its new regulations, the FIA aims to improve sustainability by using 'green' engines in two seasons' time.
These power units will be four-cylinder, 1.6 litre turbos with energy recovery systems and fuel restrictions, with the aim of increasing efficiency by 35%

Quote
Care has been taken to ensure the performance of cars will not be affected and total power outputs will remain at current levels - approximately 750bhp. The new engines will not do more than 12,000 revs per minute - current F1 engines spin at 18,000rpm.

I can't see anything against team orders being out in the open.
