Frequently Asked Questions

On this page we´re trying to answer frequently asked questions related to the DVGW verifHy Hydrogen ready Database and their usage, licensing and so on.

The DVGW verifHy Hydrogen ready Database contains information on the hydrogen suitability of products, components and materials. This information is assigned to different "ratings" depending on the type of source/reference, so an independent certificate of hydrogen suitability is of higher data quality than a self-generated manufacturer's declaration for a specific product.


The DVGW verifHy Hydrogen READY Database is licensed exclusively to grid operators. The initial licensing runs for 3 years, followed by annual licensing.


The price model is structured progressively in 7 levels and is based on the revenue from grid charges analogous to the mechanisms for calculating DVGW membership fees. To receive a concrete offer, please contact us via the contact form.
