    Goals / Remit

    SHV Energy is a leading global distributor of off-grid energy such as LPG and LNG and is active in the area of sustainable fuels (bioLPG, bioLNG, rDME) and renewable energy solutions (energy efficiency, solar). SHV Energy is a wholly owned subsidiary of SHV, a family-owned multinational, and consists of a group of specialised energy companies. Our European brands include Primagaz, Calor Gas, Liquigas, Gaspol, Primagas, Butan Plin, PrimaLNG, SHV Gas Risk & Supply Management and EM3. With these companies, we make it our mission to provide decentralised, low-carbon and clean energy solutions to business and residential customers who are not on the energy grid. We encourage and enable customers to switch from the most highly polluting fuels, such as coal and heating oil, to LPG and LNG, which results in a significant reduction in carbon dioxide and particulate matter emissions. Dimeta B.V. is a joint venture of SHV Energy and UGI International focused on developing rDME.
