Shell Energy Deutschland to Offer Power to Industrial Customers
Feb 7, 2017
February 2017 – Shell Energy Deutschland, part of the Shell Energy Europe network, has announced a new offer to customers for the supply of electricity to the German industrial segment at this year’s E-World Energy & Water Exhibition in Essen, Germany. The new offer will be available to customers during 2017.
A long-standing exhibitor at E-World, Shell Energy Deutschland has brought leading product innovations in the German market in recent years due to the integration of marketing and trading competences. The introduction of advanced solutions for natural gas supply and for the CO2 portfolio – as well as the management of combined price exposures in gas, power and CO2 – allowed Shell Energy Deutschland to consolidate a strong presence in the German industrial market.
“Developing innovative energy solutions to meet our customers’ needs is something we work towards each and every day, and we are one of the few players in the market with a strong balance sheet who can provide combined solutions on gas, power and CO2,” said Giorgia Arnaboldi, Managing Director for Shell Energy Deutschland. “The addition of physical power supply to our offerings, which we aim to begin offering later this year, enables us to provide even more cross-commodity solutions for our industrial customers.”
Shell Energy Europe is present in 14 European power markets, most of the power exchanges, and is also active in interconnection across Europe. In Germany, Shell Energy Europe is active in the power market at a trading and wholesale level and, through its collaboration with First Utility Gmbh, is already supplying power and risk management services to the residential segment under the brand Shell PrivatEnergie.
The new offering introduced at E-World enables Shell Energy Deutschland to provide more advanced solutions to industrial customers.
