Denmark's security of supply model
The Danish security of gas supply model is based on the EU Regulation (2017/1938) concerning measures to safeguard security of gas supply (hereafter “the EU regulation”). The model includes three crisis levels (Early Warning, Alert and Emergency) and a number of market-based and non-market-based measures which can be used during a supply crisis.
According to the EU regulation, the responsibility for security of gas supply is a shared responsibility of natural gas undertakings, Member States, in particular through their competent authorities, and the Commission, within their respective areas of activity and competence.
In Denmark it is the Danish Energy Agency which is the competent authority regarding security of gas supply. Energinet handles different tasks in relation to security of supply according to the Danish gas supply act.
Risk assessment, preventive action plan, and emergency plan
According to the EU regulation the competent authority must prepare and update a risk assessment, preventive action plan, and emergency plan.
The Danish Energy Agency has published the risk assessment, preventive action plan, and emergency plan.
Energinet's Emergency tariffs
Energinet’s emergency tariffs are approved by the Danish Utility Regulator. Any changes to the method must be approved by the Danish Utility Regulator.
Approved methods are available on the homepage of the Danish Utility Regulator.
