The Slovak Association of Heat Producers (SZVT), which comprises 76 heat suppliers, held talks with the gas utility Slovenský Plynárenský Priemysel, a.s. (SPP) last week about natural gas prices, which constitute about 65 percent of heat prices. According to SZVT, the results of talks should be known this week.

Chairman of SZVT Board of Directors Miroslav Obšívaný told SITA on January 28 that, according to calculations, heat producers estimated heat price growth of up to 3.5 percent from March 1, 2008. SITA
