Energinets Energy Data Service now contains data about gas

Energinet adds three new data sets on gas quality to our open energy data portal: Energy Data Service.

Now you can find data on variations in gas quality in Energinets Energi Data Service. Specifically, data on gas quality, calorific values (energy amount in the gas) and data from Energinets gas gauge and control stations (M / R) in Denmark.

Energinet publishes measurements of variations in gas quality hour by hour, day by day, month by month, and an annual average. Previously, you have been able to retrieve this data on Energinet's website, but now they can also be downloaded automatically via the API (Application Programming Interface), so they are now better suited for machine to machine communication. This is needed in the green change, where energy data is part of an increasing number of products and services.

"We are pleased that we now also publish gas data in Energi Data Service, thus collecting electricity and gas data in the same portal. It gives a uniformity so that these data can be easily utilized and consolidated - just as we combine the electricity and gas system in Energinet ", says Torben Brabo, Director of TSO Gas in Energinet.

Energi Data Service: From 14 to 21 datasets in half a year

Energy, Supply and Climate Minister Lars Chr. Lilleholt opened Energy Data Service at the "Folkemøde" on Bornholm on 17 June this year. At the launch, the portal 14 contained data sets. With today's addition of gas data, Energi Data Service now houses 21 data sets.

And it does not stop here. In 2018 Energinet will focus on among others to make these data sets available to the public:

• Biogas
• Analysis foundations
• CO2 emissions per price area: Jutland and Funen (DK1) and Zealand (DK2)
• Higher resolution and more frequent update of production and usage data
• Electricity prices



Energy Data Service
Energinet's web portal, Energy Data Service, offers CO2 signals, data from the electricity market and consumption and production data. You can access the data set via API access.

Gas quality

The quality of the gas in the Danish gas system has been determined by the Swedish Security Agency in the Gas Regulations section C-12. The gas can come directly from the North Sea, on imports from Germany, from biogas plants after upgrading or from the gas storage in Lille Torup and Stenlille. Consumers can get gas that is a mixture from several supply areas. Information about variations in gas quality is published hour by hour, day by day, and month by month.
