One company cannot solve the world’s energy challenges
If we are going to meet rising energy demands, we need energy from all sources and that includes the energy of people, too. “One company cannot solve the world’s energy challenges but by bringing together such a wide audience, the process of moving towards a cleaner energy future becomes possible – you have all of the right components to turn thoughts into actions,” says Niel Golightly, Vice President External Relations, Shell Oil Company.
Through Shell’s support of STEM education for our future innovators and by working in collaboration with governments, other companies, NGOs and the general public, Shell Eco-marathon plays a part in the energy transition by encouraging ingenuity, creativity and innovation to meet rising global energy demand with cleaner and more efficient sources.
