Shell Outlines Plans for Reducing Its Own Carbon Footprint

Shell Outlines Plans for Reducing Its Own Carbon Footprint

The energy giant has high hopes for sustainable aviation fuel

While energy giant Shell may not be the first name that comes to mind when you think of sustainability, it’s looking to change that by “reduc[ing] the carbon intensity of all the energy that we sell by 2050.”

That’s according to Dean Aragón, CEO of Shell Brands International AG, who said the company has set milestones toward becoming a net-zero emissions energy business for the years 2023, 2030 and 2035 that are “very clear, measurable and quantifiable targets on the decarbonization journey.” He did not provide specifics. read more

Together, they will build the offshore grid connection for the Hollandse Kust wind farm

Dimitris Mavrokefalidis: Monday 8 March 2021

Shell and Eneco have agreed to build the offshore grid connection for the Hollandse Kust wind farm in the Netherlands.

The wind farm, which has a total capacity of 759MW and is scheduled to be operational in 2023, is forecast to produce energy equivalent to the consumption of more than one million homes.

The agreement was sealed with the Dutch transmission system operator TenneT and will allow the group to connect and transmit power from the wind farm. read more

Shell puts electric charge into green energy future

Shell puts electric charge into green energy future

Emily Gosden, Energy Editor The Times

Royal Dutch Shell plans to operate as many as 2.5 million electric vehicle charging points globally by 2030 under a new emissions-reduction strategy that will see its oil output decline.

The Anglo-Dutch oil giant sought to flesh out its 2050 net zero emissions goal with a plan to focus on customer-facing business such as electricity sales, rather than power generation like its peers. It intends to operate half a million charging points by 2025, up from 60,000 today, and could increase this to 2.5 million by the end of the decade. read more

Shell-EDF venture seeks to build offshore New Jersey wind farm

By Reuters Staff: DECEMBER 10, 2020

(Reuters) – Wind farm developer Atlantic Shores Offshore Wind said on Thursday it had submitted a proposal to New Jersey’s utility regulators to supply the state with up to 2,300 megawatts (MW) of wind energy.

New Jersey is one of several U.S. states seeking to acquire 100% of its energy from clean sources by 2050. To help achieve that goal, the state is looking for between 1,200 MW and 2,400 MW of offshore wind energy projects. read more

Shell plans on carrying out Floating Solar tryout to Generate Hydrogen at the current ranch

Shell plans on carrying out Floating Solar tryout to Generate Hydrogen at the current ranch

11 Aug 2020

The Royal Dutch Shell-led Crosswinds has earned lease agreements on creating a new offshore wind ranch on the North Sea of the Dutch region.

The wind ranch of 760 megawatts will use practically 70 Siemens Ganesa turbines.

As confirmed by Eneco and Shell, on that particular locale, there will be a floating solar park, storage of short-term batteries, turbines set to minimize the ‘wake impact’ and renewable Hydrogen through electrolysis. The consortium aims at delivering the power amidst power outrage. read more

Shell and Eneco’s offshore wind farm to include floating solar and hydrogen production

Shell and Eneco’s offshore wind farm to include floating solar and hydrogen production

PUBLISHED THU, JUL 30 20209:19 AM EDT Anmar Frangoul

A consortium made up of Shell and Eneco is to develop an offshore wind farm that will incorporate a range of “technology demonstrations” including floating solar and hydrogen produced by electrolysis.

The 759 megawatt (MW) Hollandse Kust (noord) facility will be subsidy free and able to produce at least 3.3 terawatt hours annually, according to Eneco, a Rotterdam-headquartered firm whose shareholders are the Mitsubishi Corporation and Chubu Electric Power Co. The project will use 69 turbines from Siemens Gamesa, which will have a capacity of 11 MW each. read more

Shell to Test Floating Solar, Hydrogen Generation at New Wind Farm

Shell to Test Floating Solar, Hydrogen Generation at New Wind Farm

BY THE MARITIME EXECUTIVE 07-30-2020

The Royal Dutch Shell-led CrossWind consortium has won the lease rights to develop a novel offshore wind farm in the Dutch sector of the North Sea. The 760 megawatt farm will use about 70 giant Siemens Gamesa turbines, but it also incorporates five unusual energy demonstrator projects.

According to Shell and co-developer Eneco, the site will include a floating solar park; short-term battery storage; turbines tuned to minimize the “wake effect” that each turbine has on the units behind it; and renewable hydrogen via electrolysis. The consortium hopes that some combination of these measures will help to even out the supply of power when the wind is low. read more

Biggest battery in Europe set to land on British shores

By Sam Morgan | EURACTIV.com

Oil and gas giant Shell has plans for a 100-megawatt grid storage battery in the west of England. It is slated to be the biggest battery in Europe once it is completed later this year and will be crucial to the UK’s quest to remain the continent’s top wind power player.

The battery project in the county of Wiltshire aims to store renewable power in two 50MW cells and then sell it to consumers when demand and prices are high.

“Projects like this will be vital for balancing the UK’s electricity demand and supply as wind and solar power play bigger roles in powering our lives,” said Shell Energy Europe vice president David Wells. read more

Dane lands offshore power grid deal for EDF-Shell’s Atlantic Shores

EDF Renewables North America and Shell New Energies have tapped Danish consulting firm COWI to devise the giant electrical transmission system design for the developers’ planned Atlantic Shores wind complex off the US state of New Jersey.

COWI said its work would encompass design, quantity and placement of onshore and offshore substations as well as the interarray cables connecting substations and individual turbines.

EDF Renewables NA subsequently formed a joint venture with Shell New Energies – Atlantic Shores Offshore Wind – to develop the lease area which they believe has potential to supply up to 2.5GW of wind power capacity to multiple markets along the eastern seaboard. read more

Google Shuts Down Its Moonshot Wind Energy Unit Makani

Royal Dutch Shell Plc, which invested in Makani, said it’s exploring options to use Makani’s technology.

Bloomberg News: Mark Bergen: February 18, 2020: 6:17 PM EST

(Bloomberg) — Alphabet Inc. is shutting down Makani, a subsidiary working on wind energy, as Google’s parent company pares back its experimental technology in favor of its main internet business.

Makani was formed in 2006 to make flying kites that would harness wind power and, eventually, replace more expensive turbines. Google acquired the startup in 2013, placing the group inside its X lab with other “moonshots” like self-driving cars. Makani later became its own Alphabet unit. But the initiative suffered personnel problems and waning support from its parent company, which has pulled back on several green energy projects. read more

Wind Approval sought for low-cost offshore wind PPAs in Massachusetts

February 12 (Renewables Now) – The electric distribution companies (EDCs) in Massachusetts are seeking the state Department of Public Utilities’ approval of power purchase agreements (PPAs) with Mayflower Wind LLC for the output of an 804-MW offshore wind farm.

The contracts with Unitil, National Grid and Eversource Energy have terms of 20 years.

The project, developed by Shell New Energies and EDP Renewables, was the winner in Massachusetts’ second Request for Proposals (RfP) for offshore wind projects. The levelised price agreed for the wind farm’s output stands at USD 58.47 (EUR 53.6) per MWh in real 2019 dollars, according to a letter in support of the long-term power contracts by the Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources. The Mayflower wind park is projected to bring direct savings to ratepayers of USD 24/MWh in real 2019 dollars, on average, over the term of the power contracts. read more
