Recent analysis of relativistically expanding shells of cosmological γ-ray bursts has shown that if the bursts are cosmological, then most likely total energy is standard and not peak luminosity Assuming a flat Friedmann cosmology ( ) and constant rate density of bursting sources, we fit a standard candle energy to a uniformly selected log in the BATSE 3B catalog correcting for fluence efficiency and averaging over 48 observed spectral shapes. We find the data consistent with ergs and discuss implications of this energy for cosmological models of γ-ray bursts.
