Are you building a house or considering changing the heating system? District heating is carefree, affordable, and environmentally friendly. District heat provides constant heat and hot domestic water at all times of the day and year. As a district heating customer, you are also involved in climate action.
Finland’s most popular heating method
District heating is the most popular heating method in Finland – most new buildings are now connected to the district heating network. Oulun Energia's district heating customers can be households and companies in the areas of Oulu city centre, Haukipudas, Kiiminki, and Oulunsalo.
Heating network on a map
The total area of Oulun Energia's district heating network covers the entire city centre and the surrounding areas of Haukipudas, Jääli, Kiiminki, and Oulunsalo. To ensure reliable heat distribution, we maintain and repair the network systematically, build new network sections, and ensure that the distribution of heat runs smoothly around the clock.
Affordable and reliable heat supply
District heating is a safe and reliable method of heating. Outages happen rarely and they are of short duration. We take care of heat production and the operation of the district heating network throughout the entire life cycle of the property. The price of district heat is stable, and in Oulu it is even cheaper than in other large cities.
Heat production close to the customer
District heat is generated close to the customer. We produce it at our Toppila and Laanila power plants using biofuels and recycled fuels from nearby areas. The production is energy-efficient, as both heat and electricity are generated at the same time.
Take climate action with us!
Our goal is to move to completely carbon-neutral energy production. To achieve that, we will increase the share of renewable energy, phase out the use of peat, and improve our energy efficiency. As a district heating customer, you are also involved in climate action.
District heating is part of the circular economy. Its production utilises the side streams of forestry and non-recyclable waste. The ash produced in the production of heat is utilised as forest fertiliser, which increases the growth of forests and thus carbon sequestration.
