Heat sales volumes during 2013 amounted to 19.0 TWh (2012: 19.7) and power sales volumes from CHP production totalled 4.8 TWh (2012: 4.2). The warm weather in the last quarter reduced heat volumes.
The Heat Division’s comparable operating profit in 2013 was EUR 273 million (2012: 271). The profit increase was mainly due to lower fuel costs. New CHP capacity and better availability, especially in Finland, increased power volumes. In 2013, fixed costs were lower due to the efficiency programme. Income from sales of CO2 allowances decreased.
Operating profit in 2013 totalled EUR 288 million (2012: 344). Sales gains related to divestments totalled EUR 18 million (2012: 80).
