Shell Energy makes it easy to add renewables to your energy mix. Our managed, owned, and contracted renewable projects add over 11,000 GWh of carbon free energy to the grid each year.
Transitioning to a Lower Carbon Future
Global demand for energy is rising at a rapid pace. In fact, demand is expected to increase by 60% by 2060. The challenge? Supplying twice as much energy with fewer CO2 emissions.
To achieve ambitious carbon reduction goals such as those outlined in the Paris Agreement, Shell continues to invest in the expansion of its renewable energy network in North America and around the world.
Achieve sustainability goals
Reducing your carbon footprint isn’t just good for the planet, it’s also good business. Customers, employees and stakeholders increasingly choose companies making a difference.
Meet regulatory requirements
Achieve or surpass targets for renewable resources such as California’s Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS) Program with wind and solar power from Shell Energy.
Flexibly adjust your energy mix
Dynamically adjust your energy mix as business needs and market conditions change. This flexibility empowers you to control costs, mitigate risk and increase operational efficiencies.
Currently, we have a 1.6 GW+ solar generation capacity through our Shell-operated solar facilities and joint-venture partnerships in North America. This includes a 43% stake in Silicon Ranch Corporation—one of the largest independent power producers in the US with 120+ solar facilities across 14 states.
For the past three years, Silicon Ranch has doubled its operating portfolio, serving a range of electricity cooperatives, investor-owned utilities and Fortune 500 companies including Facebook and Volkswagen.
With solar from Silicon Ranch in partnership with Shell Energy, you can take advantage of market, service, trading and supply synergies.
With more than 15 years of experience in wind power, our North American wind portfolio includes interests in four onshore projects complemented by wind energy obtained across 8 partners.
Our assets include:
- 553 onshore turbines installed since 2001
- Texas’ Brazos windfarm
- Joint ventures with Terra-Gen in California and Wyoming
This equates to 230 MW Shell share capacity with potential to generate over 5GW through joint-interest wind farms once fully constructed.
