The DVGW supports the gas and water industry in all technical and scientific areas. The main focus of the Association’s work is on safety and hygiene as well as environmental and consumer protection. The DVGW elaborates technical rules designed to promote the technical self-management of the German gas and water industry, thus ensuring the safe and secure supply of gas and water according to the highest international standards. The Association, which was founded in 1859, currently has approximately 14,000 members. The DVGW is free from economic and political influences.
The PtG plant in Grenzach-Wyhlen has been reliably producing renewable hydrogen for many months. The research project partners, including DVGW-EBI, are gaining important insights from the 1 MW hydrogen-operated power plant.
