New Metering Structure to Reduce Tax-costs for District Heating Plant

Reference: VEKS

How can a company be sure to meet the complex Danish tax scheme for heat- and power generation? With careful planning of a precise metering structure and documentation of energy balances.

Viegand Maagøe have assisted the combined heat and power plant Køge Kraftvarmeværk with ensuring a correct metering structure for their heat and power generation. Hence, the plant achieved significant savings in tax payments.

How we solved the task

District heating suppliers and combined heat and power plants pay different fees for the energy they consume, in Denmark. VEKS, who owns Køge Kraftvarmeværk, requested Viegand Maagøe’s assistance to ensure the plant measured their energy consumption correct and in the most cost-effective manner.

Viegand Maagøe have:

  • executed an energy mapping of energy flows and current tax payments
  • proposed new solutions and metering structure to minimize tax payments
  • provided the necessary documentation to the Danish Customs and Tax Administration to introduce a new metering structure
  • ensured that the plant followed the regulations and that every new meter was correctly installed.
