KohlerKohler Co., Kohler, Wis., has transformed its power businesses to Kohler Energy, aligning with the company’s strategy of providing energy resilience to homes, businesses and communities around the world. 

“Our newly named Kohler Energy celebrates the industry-leading solutions Kohler has been offering for over 100 years and aligns with our ongoing leadership in resiliency, performance and energy capabilities that delight our customers,” says Brian Melka, Kohler Energy Group president. “Our new brand presence better reflects the modern, forward-looking and design-oriented characteristics that Kohler is known for and highlights the solutions we bring to market that provide energy resilience to our customers’ homes, businesses and tools to get jobs done.” 

Kohler says it continues to invest in new product development to drive down carbon dioxide emissions through low-carbon fuels, improved engine efficiency and power density, EV controls, and grow its portfolio of high-technology solutions. Most recently, Kohler was the first global manufacturer to certify all of its diesel engines and generators on HVO, a 90 percent carbon-reduced fuel.   

Kohler Energy offers solutions across home energy, industrial energy systems, and powertrain technologies branded under KOHLER, as well as a portfolio that includes Clarke Energy, Kohler Uninterruptible Power, Heila Technologies and Curtis Instruments. Kohler will be implementing new Kohler Energy brand elements across its portfolio of businesses in the coming months.  

“Our collective focus is to help sustain people and communities around the world and build energy resiliency. As we start to design our future to best support our customers, we are investing in clean energy, advanced technologies, and improved production and performance capabilities,” Melka says.
