Stefan Bokaemper

Kuva Systems

Chief Executive Officer

Stefan is an experienced professional with 20 years of CEO and product management experience in blue chip companies and fast growing start-ups in high tech and energy industries. His background as an energy engineer and his comprehensive understanding of product development, software engineering, business operations and team building helped him repeatedly launch novel technologies into early and fast growth markets. Stefan is co-author of 9 patents. He holds an MBA as well as an MS in Energy Engineering and BS in Mechanical Engineering. Stefan joined Kuva Systems in 2017 as CEO to lead the commercialization of a groundbreaking low cost camera technology for methane detection. Kuva cameras have now been commercial for almost two years, the company has 50 employees, a presence in Boston, Houston and Calgary, and installations with over twenty operators in US and Canada. Kuva is a leader in continuous optical gas imaging, allowing upstream and midstream operators to find and fix their emissions quickly, enabling root cause analysis and emissions quantification. Kuva believes you have to “see it to solve it”.

    Kuva | Moving Beyond Methane Leak Detection: Mitigating Super Emitters with Continuous Methane Cameras and Remote Data Analysis

    Many of the less-than super-emitter emissions are still many times more than 10kg/hr (495scfh) in rate and occur for no apparent reason. The EPA/EDF and IPCC seem to agree that eliminating emissions of that rate and larger would address 70% of the emissions created by upstream and midstream operations. The problem with that pursuit is that it’s estimated those emissions come from only 2% of the assets on a very intermittent basis while the other 30% of emissions come from the remaining 98% of the assets. In these case reviews, it will become apparent how continuous OGI (optical gas imaging) as a technology is the only way to find these emissions, determine the root cause, and intervene with corrective actions.
