The aim of this study is to analyse different temperature correction methods used for instance in monitoring energy statistics and the National Energy Outlook (NEO). The corrections are based on degree-days methods with underlying assumptions. We are going to analyse the sensitivity of some of these assumptions, namely the base temperature and temperature measurement location. Thereafter, we will investigate the influence different temperature correction methods have on the natural gas consumption of households in the Netherlands.
