Low electricity prices and cheap district heating

9 November, 2018 | Articles & Updates


Northern Sweden provides unique conditions in the form of access to large amounts of clean, renewable energy, from hydroelectric and wind power. Northern Sweden is also renowned for its stable electricity network, optimised for business-critical processes. Electricity prices are also lower and efficiency is higher than elsewhere in the country. The owner of the local network, Luleå Energi AB, has some of the lowest network prices in Sweden. The climate is cold, which leads to major energy and environmental savings. Surplus energy from SSAB is used in Luleå’s district heating system. This has given the residents of Luleå Sweden’s lowest energy costs.
