Since April 2022, the former head of communications at the German national organization for hydrogen and fuel cells (Nationale Organisation Wasserstoff- und Brennstoffzellentechnologie GmbH, NOW) has been working at the German association for gas and water standards (Deutscher Verein des Gas- und Wasserfaches e.V., DVGW). Tilman Wilhelm, who had been responsible for the public image of NOW since 2008, henceforth works as head of regulatory policy, press and public relations at the trade association. Dr. Gerald Linke, managing director of the DVGW, said, “With Tilman Wilhelm, a proven hydrogen and mobility expert with excellent political connections in Berlin and on the EU level is taking over responsibility for communications at the DVGW.”
Wilhelm said: “The pace at which we are developing our energy supply and driving forward the integration of renewables in all sectors will continue to accelerate. The coming years hold great legislative and communication challenges in store. The DVGW has a central position in this change process. The objective: an energy system that is ecological and economically successful.” He is succeeding Dr. Dennis Rendschmidt, who had left the association last year.
