Title: Shell Energy Inside

Duration: 2:55 minutes

Description: 

This video serves as the introduction of Shell Energy Inside and its offerings.

Shell Energy Inside Transcript

[Background music plays]

Upbeat, driving music begins and plays throughout.

[Voice Over (VO) Narration]

Middle-aged male voice is used throughout. The tone of the read is confident, friendly and conversational.

[Video sequence]

The video opens on montage of video clips. We start with a stove-top burner igniting, followed by sped-up traffic, sparks from a welder, a family sitting around a lit, outdoor dining table at night.

[VO]

We need energy for almost everything we do. To satisfy growing demands, energy systems must change to become more efficient and sustainable.

[Video sequence]

The video montage continues. We see a woman running on an indoor treadmill, a woman loading a dryer with clothes and another clip of sped-up traffic. The next clips begin with a modern thermostat being adjusted, followed by a clip of an active, more-industrial monitoring system. We then see clips of a field of wind turbines and solar panels.

[VO]

Shell understands the shift in energy landscapes. We're laying the foundation for new models including an innovative program to manage energy at the site level, that also increases profitability for your business. And it’s available now.

[Text display - Super]

Manage energy at the site level

[Video sequence]

The video montage continues. We cut to a close-up view of a turbine with the Shell logo attached. This is followed by a clip of a managerial-looking man and woman in hardhats working in front of solar panels, a clip featuring a fleet of electric cars being charged, a time-lapse shot of a bustling shopping mall. Cut to a clip of a busy hospital (where the super above builds in). Cut to shots of kids walking on a school campus, a young family shopping for cars, managerial co-workers having a discussion in a busy warehouse.

Introducing Shell Energy Inside.

[Animated sequence]

We transition to a 3d space that displays a wall of stark white tiles.

[Text display]

Introducing

[Animated sequence]

The white tiles flip to reveal the Shell Energy Inside (SEI) logo.

[Text display]

Shell Energy Inside

[VO]

A turnkey solution designed to help you reduce your total energy costs, upgrade aging energy infrastructure, and increase resiliency. All with no upfront investment.

[Animated sequence]

The view shifts up, as the white wall slides to become the floor and reveal a yellow, tiled wall in the distance. On the wall, the words “turnkey solution” are written. In the foreground, three representative icons shuffle and move in front of each other as they’re announced: an energy management icon featuring a hand holding an energy symbol, an energy efficiency icon featuring a lightbulb and tree leaf, a resiliency icon featuring an energy symbol with multiple extension cord-like cords emanating from it. “No upfront investment then builds in under “turnkey solutions.”

[Text display]

  • Energy Management (icon text)
  • Energy Efficiency (icon text)
  • Resiliency & EV (icon text)
  • No Upfront Investment (written on the yellow wall)

[VO]

Our subscription model enables you to have access to the most efficient and reliable equipment.

[Animated sequence]

The writing on the yellow wall is then replaced by “subscription model.” This is followed by the three previous icons, lined-up, side-by-side, flipping over to reveal new images. From left to right: the energy efficiency icon flips to reveal a picture of a piece of energy monitoring hardware, the resiliency icon flips to reveal a picture of energy storage infrastructure, the energy management icon flips to reveal a graphic highlighting energy-efficient equipment.

[Text display]

  • Subscription Model (written on the yellow wall)
  • -nergy-efficient equipment: HVAC, Lighting, Refrigeration (icon text)

[VO]

It's an easy, low-risk way to bring your facilities into the future.

[Animated sequence]

The icon squares on the left and right flip to reveal the words “easy” and “low-risk.” The center icon square flips to reveal video of a bustling business/shopping center. The camera then pushes into that video. A network of connected SEI icons is overlaid on the video footage.

[Text display]

  • Easy (icon text)
  • Low-risk (icon text)

{Transition to a new animated sequence}

[VO]

We start with an intelligent energy management system that monitors and optimizes facility efficiency and equipment performance.

[Animated sequence]

A yellow gridded background slides into place. A photo image of a piece of energy monitoring hardware slides into the right of the screen, as supers build in on the upper left side. An animated network of icons grow out of the left side of the hardware: a “main load” icon featuring a metered gauge, a “plug load” icon featuring a pronged plug, an “HVAC” icon featuring a fan, a “refrigeration” icon featuring a snowflake, a “lighting” icon featuring a lightbulb, and an “other” icon featuring a stove.

[Text display]

  • Intelligent Energy Management system (Super)
  • Main Load (icon text)
  • Plug Load (icon text)
  • HVAC (icon text)
  • Refrigeration (icon text)
  • Lighting (icon text)
  • Other (icon text)

[VO]

It's complex technology, but we've made it simple to implement.

[Animated sequence]

The energy monitoring hardware image slides off the screen, from right to left, wiping the icons away and revealing a microchip graphic. The microchip has the word “complex” written on it, and the circuitry layered on top of the word is teeming with activity. The microchip imagery is then wiped away, leaving a simple background with the word “simple” written on it.

[VO]

First, smart building controls collect real-time energy data from HVAC, lighting, and refrigeration.

[Animated sequence]

The screen transitions to a new scene featuring an energy management software program window. Within the software, the words “smart building controls” builds in. As they’re mentioned, icons for HVAC, Lighting and refrigeration light up in a panel within the window. As they’re highlighted, graphic metrics build into the main section of the window beneath the super.

[Text display]

  • Smart Building Controls (super)
  • HVAC (icon text)
  • Lighting (icon text)
  • Refrigeration (icon text)

{Transition to a new animated sequence}

[VO]

That data goes to a cloud-based energy management platform with enterprise-wide control and includes reports you can access through your mobile device.

[Animated sequence]

We then transition to a new scene featuring a blue, gridded background. A laptop and cloud icon slide on in front of the background. They’re accompanied by a super at the top of the screen reading “cloud-based energy management.” Dotted lines move between the computer and cloud to show the transfer of data. The laptop slides of the screen and is replaced by a cellphone open to an app displaying metrics/charts. To the left of the phone, supporting supers build in, all while the dotted line flow of data continues from the cloud to the phone.

[Text display]

  • Cloud-based energy management (super)
  • Mobile App (super text)
  • control
  • data

[VO]

Within the platform, smart alarms identify inferior system performance and areas with energy waste.

[Animated sequence]

The previous graphics slide off and are replaced by a dashboard of metrics, including a map highlighting the sites of alarms. That dashboard is then replaced by another unique software dashboard view showing charts and metrics. The scene then cuts to a scene featuring a previous energy management software program window, this time, displaying a line chart that descends while failing infrastructure is invoked.

{Transition to a new video sequence}

[VO]

Energy Inside doesn't just tell you about failing infrastructure, we help you upgrade underperforming equipment to reduce energy and operating costs even further.

[Video sequence]

We then transition to a scene featuring a video focused on a power meter measuring kilowatt hours. Supers build in on top of the video.

Shell manages all design, procurement, installation and maintenance for HVAC, refrigeration, and lighting upgrades along with backup power so equipment function is guaranteed. All you have to do is focus on your core business and watch your savings grow…

[Video sequence]

We then transition to a video sequence. We begin with a closeup of a Shell gas station sign. Transition then to a shot of a man working on hardware schematics on a computer. Cut then to a man performing maintenance in a machine room. Over the top of his scene, panels featuring images of various pieces of equipment build in – a thermostat, ductwork, refrigerated storage, a lit-up gas station and an industrial backup generator. We then transition to a video montage of a convenience store interior, followed by a time-lapse video of the exterior of a Shell station as it transitions from day to night.

{Transition to a new animated sequence}

[VO]

…up to 15% energy cost savings with our controls and monitoring plan.

[Animated sequence]

We then transition to an animated chart highlighting energy cost savings. We see a bar on the chart rise from 15% to 30% and beyond as we move from a section labeled “energy management systems” and then through a section labeled “energy equipment upgrades.”

[Text display]

  • Energy Cost Savings (super)
  • Energy Management Systems = 15% (Chart Label)
  • Energy Equipment Upgrades = 30% (Chart Label)

{Transition to a new video sequence}

[VO]

Of course, you're never alone. Our energy experts provide advice and support whenever you need it.

[Video sequence]

We then transition to a scene featuring a representative on a headset, fielding a call. A super builds in on top of that scene. Then, we transition to a scene of a man in managerial attire and hardhat reviewing a document in an industrial setting.

[Text display]

  • You’re Never Alone (super)

{Transition to a new video sequence}

[VO]

More solutions are in development. Solar panels and energy storage will be available soon.

[Video sequence]

We then transition two scenes, one featuring a large roof-top network of solar panels, the other highlighting a large industrial energy storage unit.

{Transition to a new animated sequence}

[VO]

Shell Energy Inside contributes to your bottom line…

[Animated sequence]

We then transition to a white paneled space where the SEI logo animates in across flipping panels.

{Transition to a new video sequence}

[VO]

…and a positive climate legacy. All without the challenges of ownership and upkeep. The future of energy management is not coming, it's already here. And Shell is your partner to bring it to life.

[Video sequence]

We then transition to a video montage featuring families enjoying the outdoors, followed by a scene for a bustling café, followed by a time-lapse scene of a city at night. On top of the final scene, a cellphone open to the SEI app slides in. Two screens are swiped through before landing on a screen featuring a smiley face. The phone featuring the smiley face zooms at the screen.

{Transition to a new animated sequence}

 [Animated sequence]

We then transition to a flat white screen, on top of which the Shell logo and contact information builds in. This fades and is replaced by an animated SEI logo build to end the video.
