EP ENERGY CONFIRMED ITS POSITION AS LEADER IN THE FIELD OF HEAT SUPPLY IN THE CZECH REPUBLIC

8.4.2016

 

The companies within EP Energy’s Heat and Cogeneration segment supplied customers with 16.9 million GJ of heat last year, 1.3 million GJ more than in 2014. This increase can be attributed mainly to the acquisition of a majority stake in the Hungarian power plant BERT and impact of winter weather. The companies, however, produced less electricity mainly due to lower prices in electricity markets. EP Energy Trading, a subsidiary of EP Energy, recorded significant annual increase of nearly 38% in the volume of traded electricity. Further details can be found in the table below.
