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 main objective of the project is to enable the broad application of hydrogen/natural gas blends by closing the knowledge gap that exists in relation to the technical effects on private and commercial gas appliances. The project consortium will identify and recommend appropriate codes and standards to be adapted to the needs and develop a strategy for managing the challenges for new and existing appliances. As a project partner, the DVGW Research Centre is involved in a number of work packages, including the experimental investigation of gas appliances.
