Hydrogen

In order to become less reliable on fossil energy sources and to prevent further global warming, we have to transform our energy system. As a carbon-free energy carrier, hydrogen can play an important role in this energy transition. In industrial processes, in automotive and as a storage medium for surplus energy.

Kiwa believes in the possibilities of hydrogen and has an extensive portfolio with unique services that cover the entire hydrogen chain, from production to end use. To enable a fully integrated hydrogen system, sharing knowledge and best practices is needed between all stakeholders in this chain: consumers, policy makers, technicians, manufacturers, installers, etc. Kiwa’s services are of added value for almost all links in the hydrogen chain.

  • You probably collect large quantities of data about your network, including, for example, inspection reports for stations, pipeline leakage detection details, breakdown records or other information.

  • Biogas, the product of digestion of biosmass, will increasingly be used as a substitute for natural gas. Biogas which has been upgraded to natural gas quality is also called green gas. The sustainability of green gas is better than electricity produced from biogas resulting from digestion.
