United Energy – district heating

  • UNITED ENERGY distributes the thermal energy that it produces to Most and Litvínov via a hot-water network of the district heating system; 
  • Most of the thermal energy is sold to the secondary networks of third-party heat distributors, through which the following are supplied:
    • Households in both towns (some 34,000) = 60% of thermal energy consumption
    • Civic amenities (kindergartens, schools, health facilities, offices, etc.)
      = 30% of thermal energy consumption 
    • Production and manufacturing companies = 10% of thermal energy consumption
  • The length of the heat distribution network totals more than 100 km of distribution pipes.

United Energy’s heat prices for 2012

  • UNITED ENERGY’s heat prices in 2012: CZK 321.94/GJ (without VAT) = the heat price paid by customers taking heat from the Komořany CHP plant of Severočeská teplárenská, a.s. in 2012;
  • Price higher by 3.9% compared with last year:
    • The y/y heat price hike is mainly due to the higher costs of fuel and the expected decline in heat sales caused by customers’ austerity measures;
    • The price for final customers is also influenced by the increase in the VAT rate from 10% to 14%;
  • The price of heat from Severočeská teplárenská, a.s. is the primary price for which heat is bought by distribution companies in Most and Litvínov.
