How will the world produce more, cleaner energy to power our homes and cities, and fuel our vehicles in decades to come?
Energy and innovation
Energy is vital to our daily lives. Over the coming decades, more people will gain access to energy and enjoy higher standards of living. At the same time, climate change remains a serious concern. We use human ingenuity, innovation and technology to unlock more, cleaner energy for the years ahead.
Inside energy and innovation
We develop innovative technologies to find and safely unlock more, and affordable, energy from ever harder-to-reach places.
Do you have a great idea or innovative technology? We look for creative people, companies and organisations to partner with.
We believe that in the power of people’s ingenuity lies the answers to tomorrow’s energy challenges and that together, we can #makethefuture today.
Young engineers from around the world hit the track on ultra-efficient cars, helping to drive the future of mobility.
What If tomatoes produced energy?
Unlocking energy from deep water
We are helping to meet the world’s growing need for energy with oil and natural gas found kilometres below the ocean’s surface.
Shell Scenarios ask “what if?” questions about the future. They help us, governments and academia understand possibilities and uncertainties ahead.
What is natural gas, and what can we do with it? The cleanest-burning hydrocarbon is both abundant and versatile.
Do you have an idea or technology that could transform the energy industry? We are seeking out original ideas, from the unproven to those ready to deploy.
