CONVERTING GAS UNITS TO KILOWATT-HOURS (KWH)

Below is a step by step process for calculating gas kWh:

Calculation for imperial gas meters

Task                                                                                                        Sample

1) Number of units used                                                                                   100

2) Convert from imperial to metric – multiply number of units used by 2.83 (fixed)   283

3) Multiply by volume correction factor (1.022640)                                       289.407

4) Multiply by calorific value (39.3)                                                           11373.699

5) Divide by kWh conversion factor (3.6- Fixed)                                         3159.361

6) Multiply by read factor                                                                         3159.361

 

Note that the correction factor changes

Note that the calorific value changes

Read factor to be determined by supplier / meter details

 

Calculation for metric gas meters

Task                                                                                                        Sample

1) Number of units used                                                                                 100

2) Multiply by volume correction factor (1.022640)                                         102.264

3) Multiply by calorific value (39.3)                                                             4018.975

4) Divide by kWh conversion factor (3.6 -Fixed)                                          1116.382

 

Note that the correction factor changes
