A rate of €4.10 per megawatt hour applies, with effect from 1 May 2012 (this replaced the rate of €3.07 that operated from 1 May 2010). It is derived from the rate of €20 per tonne of CO2 emitted that has been applied to fuels generally.
The rate of €4.10 per megawatt-hour is based on net calorific value. Where the quantity of gas supplied is measured using a gross calorific value, the rate should be multiplied by a conversion factor of 0.9028, giving an effective rate of tax of €3.70 per megawatt hour at gross calorific value.
Calculation (Net Calorific Value per Megawatt Hour):
57,022(a) * 0.0036 (b) * €0.02(c) = €4.10
Emission factor of natural gas in kilograms of CO2 per terajoule
Number of terajoules per megawatt-hour
Rate of 2 cent per kilogram of CO2 emitted
Calculation (Gross Calorific Value per Megawatt Hour):
€4.10 (d) * 0.9028 (e) = €3.70
Net Calorific Value
Next: Natural Gas supplied for use as motor vehicle fuel
