The WAND Gas Utilities Taxonomy - Next in the Utilities Suite

The next taxonomy in our Utilities Suite is the WAND Gas Utilities Taxonomy 

It is designed to provide terms specific to gas utility companies and should be used in conjunction with the WAND Utilities Taxonomy.

You may be familiar with our WAND Electric and Gas Utilities Taxonomy which has been a part of the WAND Taxonomy Library Portal for several years.  We decided that it was time to also create an expanded independent Utility Taxonomy and then follow that with individual taxonomies for the various utility providers.  We will keep the WAND Electric and Gas Utilities Taxonomy as a legacy taxonomy.


The new WAND Gas Utilities Taxonomy provides a foundation of 212 terms and 105 synonyms and can be customized to fit the needs of any Gas Utility Company.

This taxonomy includes terms relating Natural Gas Utilities Infrastructure, Pipeline Development, Maintenance and Repairs, and Metrics as well as Natural Gas Agreements and Contracts, Associations and Organizations, Forms and Applications, and FERC Natural Gas Markets.

The WAND Electric Utilities Taxonomy is also available for companies that provide both Gas and Electricity to their customers.
Watch for our soon-to-be released WAND Water Utilities Taxonomy and the WAND Wastewater Utilities Taxonomy in the suite of Utilities Taxonomies. 

As with all WAND Taxonomies, the WAND Gas Utilities Taxonomy is available by itself or as part of the WAND Taxonomy Library Portal.
