Electricity prices have skyrocketed in 2022 due to a combination of factors – not least the war in Ukraine, which has caused electricity consumers great inconvenience.
So it was convenient for the customers of the Slagelse-based electricity company SK Energi that it offered fixed rate agreements, which meant that no matter how much electricity prices rose, they just paid the agreed price per kilowatt hour.
But now, according to Henrik Birch, CEO of SK Energi, these agreements must be terminated at the beginning of November.
“It is a highly unusual situation, and I can only deeply regret that we are doing it. But I think we have to, because we don’t know what will happen next winter,” he says to DR.
He understands that customers may feel let down – after all, the agreement was signed to prevent price fluctuations – but he also hopes they will understand that SK Energi must make this decision.
In the meantime, the Danish Energy Agency has given a detailed overview of how the war will affect Denmark, including the issue of electricity and gas energy supply. Visit website to see how best to prepare for winter.
