Grid issues

Heat-trading entities or vertical heat utilities are obliged to priority purchase of heat generated from renewable energy sources provided it is offered at a price no higher than the average price of heat from other sources supplying the network, increased by the average annual price index of consumer goods and services. In general, all technologies but geothermal energy are eligible for support.
