Prague – Pražská teplárenská started supplying heat to Prague households and businesses today. The reason is the drop in average daily temperatures and the weather forecast for the following days. The company informed about it on its website website. Last year, the company started the heating season a day later, on September 20, according to spokesman Marko Pšeniční.

If it gets hot for a long time, the company will reduce the heating. “Our transfer stations are equipped with automatic regulation, which automatically regulates the operating equipment when the outside temperatures increase and limits the heating to avoid wasting energy. For transfer stations that are not operated by our companies, if necessary, it is necessary to contact their operators first,” she said company.

According to the decree of the Ministry of Industry and Trade, the heating season starts in September and lasts until the end of May. The start, interruption and termination of heat supply depends on the average daily outdoor temperatures and the weather forecast according to the Czech Hydrometeorological Institute (ČHMÚ). Heating plants start supplying heat if the average daily temperature drops below 13 degrees Celsius for two consecutive days and no warming is expected the next day. If the average daily temperature exceeds 13 degrees for two days in a row and, depending on the weather, cooling cannot be expected, the heating plants will interrupt or stop the supply of heat.

Pražská teplárenská in Prague supplies heat to more than 235,000 households and a number of administrative buildings, industrial enterprises, educational and medical facilities and other entities. The company belongs to the Veolia Energie group, which in the Czech Republic also operates in the Moravian-Silesian, Olomouc, Central Bohemia, South Bohemia and Karlovy Vary regions.

Last year, Pražské teplárenská’s net profit fell by 22.4 percent year-on-year to 479 million crowns. Operating profit increased by 52.5 percent to 575 million crowns. Total sales increased by 11 percent to 5.56 billion crowns. The basic source of heat production for Pražská teplarenská is Elektrárna Mělník, which falls under ČEZ. Pražské teplárenská supplied almost 90 percent of the heat last year. Another 7.6 percent of the heat is supplied by waste-to-energy equipment in Prague-Malešice, which is owned by Pražské služby.
