As a generation of experts continues to retire from the energy industry, vital knowledge is lost. Moreover, the push towards a more responsible energy transition is calling for a diverse set of expertise. These changes in demographics, combined with the momentum behind a responsible energy transition, led to the formation of Jiva Consulting. Jiva is a Calgary-based consultancy focused on transferring this expertise to the next generation of industry professionals.

    Since 2012, we have been combining technical expertise, educational knowledge, and communication skills to provide the energy industry with effective knowledge transfer solutions.

    "Our mission is to transfer knowledge and inspire lifelong learning by connecting people and building communities of practice."
