As an international technical association for power and heat generation we are working - on European level - in close co-operation with EURELECTRIC, the umbrella association of the European electricity industry. Within the framework of a memorandum of understanding association agreement between EURELECTRIC and VGB, VGB's professional competence is integrated into the political/strategical work of EURELECTRIC in all questions regarding the generation of power and heat including issues of environmental protection.

Moreover, VGB represents the German power plant operators in the WANO (World Association of Nuclear Operators). With our technical committees on nuclear power plant engineering and operation and nuclear fuel cycle we are actively taking part in the world-wide exchange of experience as well as in the analysis of particular events in nuclear power plants. For this purpose, we are operating a reporting and evaluation centre (ZMA - Zentrale Melde- und Auswertestelle) to collect, evaluate and forward the occurrences of nuclear power plants.
