Calorific Values

The calorific value is used to calculate how much energy has been shipped and received.

Settlement purposes

Gas companies use calorific values for energy account settlement purposes.

Energy delivered

Average calorific values and densitites are used to calculate the amount of energy delivered by our gas system when taking into account regional difference in gas quality that are due to variations in operational conditions of Denmark's gas system.

Current month

Gas companies use calorific value for the current month for energy settlement purposes.

Monthly averages

The calorific values listed below, are monthly averages of recorded values. They may differ from the figures applied to settlements of consumption.

Additional information

Additional information is available from you gas supplier and local gas distribution company, such as information about which specific M/R station delivers your gas.

CO2 emission factor

Assuming 100% combustion, the CO2 emission factor is calculated at the lower calorific value.

Transported Energy

You will find the monthly averages for the upper calorific value and density, measured at Energinet’s M/R stations. The upper calorific value is used for calculating the amount of transported energy, while the density figure is used to convert mass to volume.

Border stations & gas storage facilities

The calorific values listed for border stations and gas storage facilities are for informational purposes only and is not suited for settlement purposes.

Calorific value

Calorific value is a measurement of energy per unit of gas and is used to settle commercial transactions
