The benefits of membership in the DVGW

Practice-oriented, exclusive information and a strong network

The DVGW is the first contact in Germany for all gas and water issues. This is why we ensure that our services are broadly diversified, ranging from practice-oriented information to innovative research projects. Our members can directly influence developments in their sector via the General Meeting, participation in the various bodies of the association and especially through active work on the technical committees. The networked, decentralized organisation of the association ensures rapid, comprehensive information flow throughout the industry. DVGW offers a strong network for the gas and water supply industry.
