Zero-emission transportation, greater flexibility of the electricity grid and cleaner industrial processes are all necessary to realise energy transition. Hydrogen, thanks to its characteristics, has the potential to contribute significantly to the achievement of this ambitious goal. Kiwa, thanks to our expertise in the gas sector and to our wide knowledge of related infrastructures, has a unique stance in the hydrogen market. We are active at national and international levels for technical assistance, testing, inspection and certification of solutions dedicated to this supply chain.

Green hydrogen is produced from renewable energy sources such as wind and solar power, following the process of electrolysis, whereby water molecules are split into oxygen and hydrogen molecules using electricity.Find out more about our services
One of the main fields of application for which hydrogen is being explored is the conversion of conventional gas distribution networks into hydrogen networks.Find out more about our services
Another challenge for the entire hydrogen supply chain, and specifically for car manufacturers, is storage. Hydrogen has a very low density, which means it has to be stored at high pressure. Kiwa offers services like certification, testing and inspection for hydrogen storage.Find out more about our services
