LHV is closest to the actual energy yield in most cases. HHV (including condensation of combustion products) is greater by between 5% (in the case of coal) and 10% (for natural gas), depending mainly on the hydrogen content of the fuel. For most biomass feed-stocks this difference appears to be 6-7%. The appropriateness of using LHV or HHV when comparing fuels, calculating thermal efficiencies, etc. really depends upon the application. For stationary combustion where exhaust gases are cooled before discharging (e.g. power stations), HHV is more appropriate. Where no attempt is made to extract useful work from hot exhaust gases (e.g. motor vehicles), the LHV is more suitable. In practice, many European publications report LHV, whereas North American publications use HHV (Source: Bioenergy Feedstock Network -- References: Energy Kids Page, Energy Information Administration, ( Energy Information Administration, ( Wikipedia, ( Measurement Converter, Convertit.com, ( Bioenergy Feedstock Information Network, ( Iowa Energy Center, Iowa State University, ( Biomass Energy Datebook, U.S. Department of Energy, () Ag Decision Maker Home Page
