District heating for business

District heating has a very high operational reliability and the wear on the pipes underground is small. In the event of an interruption, reserve systems can be connected. Often the temperature in the property will not even drop before the district heating is back. For those who are property owners, district heating is a flexible and reliable system with low environmental impact.

District heating prices and contracts

How is our district heating produced?

Partille Energi buys all district heating from Göteborg Energi. Approx 70 % of the district heating produced by Göteborg Energi comes from recycled energy from industrial waste heat and waste incineration. Approx. 20 % originates from renewable fuel, like bio fuel and the remaining 10 % is produced by natural gas.

Björndammen’s district heating plant is the only production unit for district heating in Partille municipality. The plant is managed by Göteborg Energi and it is used on rare occasions, when the weather is really cold, when the network is faulty or when there is a problem at some other production unit.

The different parts of the district heating fee

Energy consumption

The energy consumption shows how much heat the business uses and it determines how much heat is needed to be produced. The energy price is divided into three seasons because the costs of producing district heating are different over the year. During the summer there is a lot of waste heat available and the price is then lower. During the winter, the total heat demand is greater while there is a shortage of waste heat. The price is then higher than the other seasons. The energy part makes up about 70% of your total district heating cost.


The effect part shows how the heating is used, i.e. how even the effect output is. The output will determine which production readiness is needed. The effect fee consists of a fixed and a variable part. The variable part is based on the average of the three highest daily average values ​​from the most recent rolling 12-month period. The effect part constitutes about 30% of your total district heating cost. An even use of heating will cost less, while an uneven use will cost more.

Efficiency (return temperature)

The efficiency shows how well the plant assimilates the heat that goes into the property and affects how much water is needed to circulate in the system, but also which heat sources we have the opportunity to use. A measure of efficiency is to check the return temperature from the district heating system. The lower the return temperature, the higher the efficiency. The system’s return temperature is compared each month with the system’s average return temperature, and gives a discount or a fee of 5 SEK per consumed megawatt hour and degree. If you get a discount, it means that your return temperature is below the district heating system’s average return temperature. The return temperature component affects the total price by about +/- 5%.

Special contracts

District heating can be used in more areas than those you may first think of, as a property owner or construction company. In addition to our basic offer, we also have special contracts and agreements for ground heating and construction heating.

Ground heating

Those who choose district heating can also use it to keep the land area free from snow and ice during the winter, for example at entrances, in squares or streets. Ground heating with district heating is a resource-efficient and convenient heating alternative. It also provides lower heating costs compared to many other alternatives. You only pay for the energy used and not for any effect peaks. As ground heating is driven by district heating, the security of supply is also very high, but on special occasions when the demand for district heating is high, we as a supplier can prioritize the ground heating supply for the benefit of other customers.

Price ground heating 2020
The price for ground heating is 759 kr/MWh.

Construction heating

For those who are in need of heating during new construction, rebuilding or renovation, we at Partille Energi offer a product that we call building heating.
Construction heating is only offered during the construction period and thereafter an ordinary supply contract is signed for district heating.

Price construction heating 2020
For the construction heating, you only pay a variable energy price which for 2020 is 698 kr/MWh

Environmental values and environmental options

District heating is an important part of the overall energy system. If district heating is used for heating, electricity and electricity effect can be used for electric car charging, which in turn replaces fossil fuels.

As a customer, you can further strengthen your company’s environmental profile by choosing environmental options for your district heating.

Environmental values

Environmental values for our district heating are accounted for according to a method developed by Värmemarknadskommittén (the Heat Market Committee). The committee consists of representatives from Fastighetsägarna (the property owners’ national organisation), HSB and Riksbyggen (two of the largest cooperative housing associations in Sweden), Hyresgästföreningen (Tenants Association), SABO (Public Housing Sweden), and Energiföretagen Sverige (Swedenergy).
The environmental impact of district heating can be seen from three perspectives:

  • How the energy is used in terms of efficiency
  • The amount of carbon-dioxide emissions through the complete production chain
  • The amount of fossil fuels used in each district heating network
