    This report describes the use of the Danish EnergySystem (DES) Model, which has been used for several years asthe most comprehensive model for the energy planning. The structureof the Danish energy system is described, and a number ofenergy system parameters are explained, in particular the efficienciesand marginal costs of combined heat and power (CHP).Some associated models are briefly outlined, and the use of themodel is described by examples concerning scenarios for the primaryenergy requirements and energy system costs up to the year2000, planned development of the power and heating systems, assessmentof nuclear power, and effects of changes in the energysupply system on the emissions of SO2 and NOX.
