Declaration, Consumption coverage per Hour

This data set describes how the consumption in a bidding area (price area) is covered by production and imports, hour by hour.

Danish production is based on which plants are in operation each hour, combined with data from the Danish Energy Agency’s fuel count. For imported electricity, the composition is based on data from Entso-E “Production per production type”, hour by hour.

Imports are handled side by side with Danish production, ie a gross model is used, where a net model is used in the Danish environmental declaration, meaning Danish production is reserved Danish consumption.
