Stockholm Exergi pays for delivered heat capacity based on what the equivalent heat would have cost to produce in our plants. Payments are dependent upon ambient outdoor temperatures. For example, Stockholm Exergi pays MSEK 1.5 annually for heat deliveries of 1MW. Our payment model is split into two geographical areas: North and South Stockholm, and two different contract models to suit suppliers’ different circumstances and requirements.
Open District Heating Call
With ODH Call, suppliers and Stockholm Exergi agree on what levels of capacity are to be supplied to the district heating network. Stockholm Exergi call for heat when there is demand in the network with a guarantee to the supplier that such requests are always made when the outdoor temperature is 12°C or below. Suppliers’ payments are made up of two components: a fixed monthly payment for capacity delivered, and a variable energy payment for delivered heat. The delivery temperature to the district heating network’s flow line is typically 68°C, but can be higher in certain cases.
ODH Call is suitable for data centers and other businesses that have stable levels of excess heat throughout the day and year.
Open District Heating Spot
With ODH Spot, suppliers decide when to supply heat based on their own circumstances, and no specific capacity demands are made. Suppliers receive energy payments for the amount of heat they supply. Payments are based on outdoor temperatures and increase as outdoor temperatures decrease. ODH Spot is appropriate for businesses with variable levels of excess heat.
Deliveries to the district heating network can be made in three different ways, all of which have different demands in terms of delivery temperatures and payment levels.
