Degree days correction

The consumption of natural gas or other sources of heat for heating depends on the weather. The colder it is, the more heat is required. To see whether the increase in energy consumption is due to the weather you can correct gas consumption by degree days. Degree days correction has no effect on the environmental impact and CO2 emissions (because you really consume so much gas / wood chips / district heating), but there are several indicators that calculate the degree day corrected consumption.

The number of degree days is the number of degrees the average daily temperature of the day is below 18.0°C. By adding these degree days you will get the number of degree days of a month or a year.
