Question from webinar: What is the monthly district heating cost for a typical Gothenburg family? This is dependent on the type and size of living space, how insulated the house is, the outdoor temperature, etc. This reply will use city average numbers and includes the following assumptions: the size of a family’s living area in a multi-family building is 65 square meters, average district heating use is 150 kWh/square meter and year, and the current average cost of district heating in Gothenburg is 0.0615 Euro/kWh. This gives (65 x 150 x 0.0615) an approximate annual cost of 600 Euro. (This cost also includes heating of hot water.)
