Imagine renewable energy always being available. Whenever and wherever you need it. Reliable and safe. Made possible by ingenious software. That’s what we call smart energy. As Koolen Industries, it is our mission to enable everyone to contribute to the energy transition. By using energy from the wind or the sun. By making sure it is there, whenever you need it. By providing you an autonomous life, independent of the grid. Or by sharing and trading energy with others that want to contribute to a better world too.
