Stt bought energy for hospitals for a given year, prices will rise according to the Wolf House


Health Minister Vlastimil Vlek (TOP 09) said on Monday in Brno, when asked by TK, that the ministry bought energy about 14 days ago. We need enough gas and electricity for all women, medical facilities, etc.

According to him, the price is not even the maximum, according to the recommendations of the Ministry of Industry and Trade. In hospital budgets, energy costs are below five percent, so those will increase by 50 to 100 percent, Vlek added.

According to Jakob, energy deliveries are agreed at the so-called spot price of 2023, supplemented by a demand coefficient. So the total price is not yet known, but will depend on the market prices of the next commodities on the exchange in 2023. However, the prices will be subject to a price cap as approved by the government, he said. According to him, the ministry is not fulfilling its obligation to pay energy to hospitals.

According to Jakob, the hospitals thus pay a coefficient of 400 crowns per megawatt hour of gas or electricity in low voltage and 273 crowns for electricity in high voltage according to the contract prices at current market prices.

Originally, the ministry wanted to provide energy to hospitals by the end of the year, but according to Vlka’s two publications, it is not possible to send pensions to hospitals to increase the price of energy from the public health fund. Hospitals are paid through this mechanism for the declared pi, which they should include in vc. According to Vlek, Nrsty could be covered by a hunger allowance for five years.

Veolia Komodity supplied energy to the Ministry of Health until this summer. took about 470 million kroner a year from purchases on the Moravian Commodity Exchange, the ministry planned to purchase about 270 gigawatt hours.

Energy prices will rise by tens of percent this year and consumers will pay for the fifth year in a row. A large customer pays a lot of ceiling prices. In June, the government set price caps of K6,000 for one megawatt hour (MWh) of electricity including VAT and K3,000 for one MWh of gas. For this it is necessary to pay distribution costs.
