Lower Carbon Fuels
The Great Travel Hack isn't about going faster, it's about going cleaner. Watch our experts explore a range of lower carbon fuel types used to power the teams on their journey.
How does hydrogen power a car? Shell expert Norman Koch explains.
Find out about the race car driving the future of hydrogen.
Hydrogen is one of the most abundant elements in the universe and could play a significant role in the transition to a cleaner, low-carbon energy system. Shell has a growing network of hydrogen stations in Europe and in North America, where it is part of several initiatives to encourage the adoption of hydrogen in transport.
How does an electric car work? Shell expert Norman Koch explains.
Rowan Muljar introduces the NOBE, an ultra efficient three wheeled electric car.
Fabian Renner introduces the all-electric UNIMOKE.
Electric vehicles are expected to play an increasingly important role in transporting people and products. Effective recharging systems will be vital to ensure drivers can charge without disrupting their own journeys or stressing the broader power grid. Shell is working to meet the charging needs of electric vehicle drivers – at home, at work or on the road.
How do hybrid cars work? Shell expert Norman Koch explains.
Hybrid vehicles are filling the gap between fuel-based and electric vehicles. They have a significantly reduced fuel consumption due to the engine being powered by both gasoline and an electric motor, which has benefits to the environment. Discover the three main types of Hybrid engines with Shell's Norman Koch, General Manager of the energy efficiency challenge, Shell Eco-marathon.
How can nature help to reduce the effects of emissions?
The world needs a range of measures to tackle climate change while meeting the rising demand for energy. Shell is investing in the protection and restoration of forests, wetlands and other natural ecosystems around the world which support biodiversity and local communities. Frank van Hedel of Het Buitenfonds explains how with Shell's support, they will plant more than 5 million trees in the Netherlands.
