Domestic use of natural gas
DGC's mission is to promote safe, effective and environment-friendly domestic gas installations. Also very important is the introduction of hybrid solutions combining gas and renewable technologies. Another important current topic is varying gas qualities and the adaptation of appliances to changing gas composition.
The new ECO-design directive will be the framework for future energy labelling, and DGC is involved in developing new procedures to this end and on assessing the consequences for domestic gas use. Furthermore, DGC develops codes of practise for installers and consulting engineers working with energy gases.
- for installers: selection of best boiler in a given situation, safety consulting services, DGC-technical guides
- for equipment manufacturers: testing of appliances, labelling
- for domestic gas customers: best choice of boiler, assessment of energy savings
