Heat/steam, bought (district heating) 70,853 70,835 74,181 80,441
Heat/steam sold (district heating offset)* –10,055 –8,160 –8,561 –9,853

*) Renewable in the sense that it is excess heat that would otherwise be 'energy spill'. But occurs at locations that buy non-renewable district heating. And feeds back to a district heating grid that is distributing non-renewable district heating to other customers. Sandvik records this as non-renewable.
