2) Producer: any natural or legal person who owns or operates a plant on its own account.

4) work: one or more electricity facilities, which are located on the same land or on multiple contiguous land registers.
§ 2. Energinet.dk Showdown of compensation on an annual basis by multiplying the applicable CO2 for fuels for power generation in afgiftsats that year with fuel consumption in a base year, which is set out as referred to in paragraph 2.
(2). Fuel consumption in a base year shall be established with effect from 1 January. January 2010 as taxable consumption of CO2 taxable fuels in the years 2005, 2006 or 2007, where consumption was highest, see. However, paragraphs 3 and 4. If the plant has only been in operation for a year, fixed fuel consumption as consumption in that year.
(3). If electricity production in that year which shall be selected in accordance with paragraph 2, shall be regarded as disproportionately low compared to electricity production with corresponding capacity in 2004 or earlier years with the regular operation of the work in question, and this discrepancy can be attributed to crashes or renovation of one or more plants, corresponding to a total cessation of operation of the plant for at least 2 months or other similar major disruption lay down Energinet.dk fuel consumption on an annual basis, on the basis of the plant's production and operational costs in periods in the years 2005 to 2007, in which the operation is deemed regular.
(4). If a work has been connected to the grid in 2007, lays down Energinet.dk fuel consumption on an annual basis, on the basis the plant's production in operating period in this year.

§ 4. The share of total energy consumption in a combined heat and power plant, which is used in electricity generation, is calculated as total energy consumption subtracted from the measured heat production divided by 1.25. The share, which is used in electricity generation, however, can be calculated as the consumption of energy for electricity production divided by 0.65 if also by application as mentioned in section 1, paragraph 4, provides evidence that the manufacturer has used this calculation in the selected base year.
(2). When calculating the energy content in fuels used brændværdier, as referred to in annex 1, unless also demonstrates that the calorific value of a fuel different from that which is referred to in the annex.
