DVGW elects new president

The German association for gas and water standards (Deutscher Verein des Gas- und Wasserfaches eV, DVGW) appointed Jörg Höhler as its new president at the end of November. His predecessor, Michael Riechel, gave up this post earlier than originally planned. The DVGW explained to H2-international that Riechel, who is additionally board chairman of Thüga AG, “with view of his retirement from the company in the course of the coming year” had wanted to settle his succession in office at an early stage. The 61-year-old saw that it was time to leave his seat to someone else and that it should not wait until the next general meeting, when the vote for a new president would take place, which is why a special general meeting was called, it was said.

Höhler was previously vice president and has been a member of the executive board since 2015. Since 2009, the 56-year-old engineer has been a board member of the energy provider for Wiesbaden, ESWE Versorgung AG, and he has been board member of the power company Kraftwerke Mainz-Wiesbaden AG since 2017. He stressed that particularly in these difficult times, understanding and communication with each other and a shared sense of unity are important to “mobilize all forces in the association network.” He further stated, “The DVGW has become a key player in hydrogen advancement in recent years.”


The post of vice president is immediately being assumed by Markus Last, who has been a member of the executive board since 2014.
