Shell and the Churchill Club
Shell has an alliance with the Churchill Club, an independent, non-profit business and technology forum in Silicon Valley, USA. Its regular events allow thought leaders in business, innovation, academia and government to discuss the latest global developments, generating insights helping to drive innovation and economic growth that benefit society.
Our relationship with the Churchill Club allows us to contribute to the discussion on energy and innovation in the Silicon Valley epicentre of innovation.
In June 2016, Shell partnered with Churchill Club and the Stanford National Gas Initiative for the Open Forum discussion: What is the Role of Natural Gas in a Decarbonized Energy Future?
Leading experts from Stanford University spanning the natural gas value chain, and Shell Integrated Gas and New Energies Director Maarten Wetselaar, took part in a candid conversation exploring the opportunities and challenges around natural gas today and in the future.
Speakers included Sally Benson, Precourt Energy Institute Director, Stanford University; and Adam Brandt, Assistant Professor of Engineering, Department of Energy Resources Engineering, Stanford University. Mark Zoback, who is Benjamin M. Page Professor of Geophysics and Director, Natural Gas Initiative, Stanford University, facilitated the discussion and debate.
