INOGATE Technical Secretariat will organise a Study Visit on the development, use and integration of DVGW Gas Transmission standards. The event is scheduled to take place in Bonn and Essen, Germany, from 9th to 11th April 2014 and will be hosted by Deutscher Verein des Gas und Wasserfaches (DVGW), in collaboration with Open Grid Europe (OGE) and Gas und Wärme-Institut Essen (GWI).

During the study visit speakers will explain the development and use of DVGW gas standards and how they can be combined with other European and international standards to help INOGATE Partner Countries to modernise their standardization system and improve gas safety. The study visit will also provide examples of how a European transmission network operator and a technical gas institute function.

The overall objective of this study visit is to reinforce the effort made by the PCs to their further attempt at harmonizing relevant European gas standards and updating their standardization systems. It will provide an insight into good practice by a European Member State. The topics of the agenda will include:

·         The role of DVGW and DVGW standards in the legal framework in Germany

·         Application of DVGW Technical Rules in relation with European Standards

·         Demonstration at the gas damage facility


One of the aims of the INOGATE Technical Secretariat project is to promote the harmonisation and use of European and international gas and electricity standards.

We are happy to provide you with the Survey that was prepared in the framework of Sustainable Energy Component of the INOGATE Technical Secretariat project. The baseline survey highlights an independent view on the legislation and regulatory frameworks in sustainable energy in INOGATE Partner Countries, namely Azerbaijan, Armenia, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine. The Survey also serves as a tool for comparison of RES/EE policies in INOGATE Partner Countries and for identification of reforms needed to achieve sustainable development of their economies.

On 3-7 March 2014, the INOGATE experts conducted their second working mission to Yerevan, Armenia to continue technical assistance (TA) two universities in developing advanced curricula on sustainable energy.

The European experts have been working with the State Engineering University of Armenia (SEUA) and the Yerevan State University of Architecture and Construction (YSUAC) to improve curricula in 5 topics:  energy efficiency in buildings, industrial energy efficiency, renewable energy sources, sustainable energy policy and sustainable energy economics. The TA strengthened training capabilities of the professors involved.

During this visit, the INOGATE experts presented 5 of the 14 new lectures that they developed. These experts also discussed curriculum recommendations in each of the 5 topcis with the beneficiary universities.  The professors will be able to continue the training as well as revise and update the lectures in the future.

Overall, this TA will contribute to preparing more qualified professionals in EE and RES thereby supporting longer term development of sustainable energy in the country.
