Sign a district heating contract well in advance
The heating contract of a new building is signed once the construction permit has been obtained and the construction schedule has been confirmed, or no later than upon the commencement of the building's foundation work. A district heating contract for an existing property is signed when the building owner or representative announces that they want to connect the building to the district heating network.
For those replacing other forms of heating with district heating, we will prepare a tender calculation based on the information we have received in the invitation to tender.

How district heating works
heating is produced locally and transferred from the power plant to customers
via hot water running through district heating networks. The cooled district
heating water is returned to the power plant for reheating.
heating is always locally generated utilising the fuel that is most appropriate
for the location. Most of district heating generation is based on combined heat
and electricity generation.
The co-generation of power and heat has a central role in the reduction of the
environmental load and fulfilment of the objectives set for the reduction of
greenhouse gas emissions. In the
co-generation, excess energy from power production is used for district heat
production instead of conducting it as condensate heat to waterways, for
Co-generation is efficient, since it utilises almost 90 per cent of the energy
contained in the fuel. Through co-generation, environmental emissions are 30%
lower than in the case where electricity and heat are generated separately.
Most of district heat generation, i.e. about 80%, is based on combined heat and
electricity generation. District heat is also generated in separate heat
We want to be a forerunner
in environmental matters
energy production requires that renewable sources of energy are used more
frequently. We continuously develop the use of biofuels in heat production and
the goal is to design new plants so that biofuels can be used in them. Our goal
is to use renewable biofuels more extensively in heat production.
