Developing the best practice of the future
The DVGW standards are a clear manifestation of technical self-regulation in Germany. Specialists from the gas and water industry shape the standards themselves and German law specifi cally refers to these documents.
This principle indicates on the one hand “best practice” solutions, on the other hand it supports the compliance with legal requirements.
The pooling of specialist competence at the national level lays the foundation for international cooperation within Europe and beyond. Within the standardization bodies DIN, CEN and ISO, DVGW plays a key role in shaping European and international standards.
Current topics of DVGW specialist activities:
|Security of supply||Water ressources management|
|Energy efficiency||Drinking water protection|
|Power to gas||Strategic asset management|
|LNG / SNG / Biogas||Energy efficiency in plants and |
|Innovative water treatment|
