The government wants to play tricks with district heating:

The government can try to maintain the appearance of utility reduction with a special district heating trick – it was revealed from the words of Attila Steiner, the state secretary responsible for energy at the Ministry of Technology and Industry.

The government wants to play tricks with district heating:


As Népszava reports, the state secretary spoke at a conference on Tuesday about plans to reduce the amount of heat transferred to residential users in district heating systems this winter.

The “extent and how” have not yet been worked out. According to the experts from Budapest interviewed by Népszava, this would not mean a reduction in the quantity or temperature of domestic hot water, but rather a reduction in the amount of heat used for heating. But they didn’t even dare to guess by how many degrees this would reduce the temperature of the apartments, since for now they are just trying to figure out what the ministry is thinking. There was no prior professional consultation.

All of this could even mean: since it would not be easy to raise the district heating tariffs – due to the many unmetered apartments – less heat will be provided for the same amount.
