Your network of excellence in the gas and water industry

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.

Gas and water – topics of the future

We create the basis for innovations

Public gas and water supply have always been and will remain an important pillow of our society. These days, the issues faced in both fields are heavily influenced by the energy transition and climate change. We publish the latest findings from research for use in practice, from the operation of gas pipelines to water and wastewater treatment.
