The history of the EWII Group began in 1867 where Vejle had a water works as the fourth city in Denmark. That was the beginning of EWII’s oldest area of operation which is still active today, namely drinking water supply.
Since then, the Group has been engaged in energy and infrastructure, helped form the future of the energy sector, and played an important role in the development of the intelligent solutions and sustainable energy technologies of the future.
Today, the EWII Group consists of commercial companies under EWII A/S and utility companies under TREFOR Infrastruktur A/S, and it is headquartered in Kolding.
EWII was founded by a merger between the municipal utility companies in Vejle, Fredericia and Middelfart, and Kolding Områdets Energiselskab (KOE) in 1998 and 2001 respectively, thus ending the municipal ownership and turning EWII into a private business enterprise organised as an independent institution.
The Group celebrated its 150th anniversary in 2017.
EWII aspires to be the commercially service-oriented, customer-focused, and strongest utility supermarket in Denmark.
