Provisions in detail

Summary of grid issues

Connection to the grid

Companies operating a district heating network are obliged to negotiate terms with the operator of a heating plant prior to connecting the plant to the network. Yet, this obligation does not imply that the companies are obliged to connect plants to their networks. If no agreement concerning connection to the district heating grid can be met, the operator of the district heating network shall grant the heat generating plant a regulated grid access.

Statutory provisions

  • Act No. 2008:263 (Fjärrvärmelag – Act on District Heating)
