Whatever our future energy system may look like, the transition to a more sustainable, flexible energy production and storage requires a knowledge partner who is familiar with the full spectrum of energy supplies. As an international service provider in the energy and water chain, Kiwa is that partner. Rooted in the gas sector, our expertise and services have expanded into the entire energy and water sector. We support our customers - ranging from government and industry to network operators and housing associations - with research, consultancy, engineering, training, product development and the construction and implementation of components, devices and systems.
