Shell & The Integrated Power system
Shell is involved at almost every stage of the integrated power system: from generating electricity, to buying and selling it, to storing it, to supplying it directly to customers. Explore the interactive to discover examples of what we're doing.
Shell's primary focus areas
Our share of solar installed capacity at the end of 2019 was 414 MW with 442 MW in development.
We are increasing the use of solar power at our own sites, such as at the Stockton fuels distribution, California, USA, and at our Moerdijk chemicals site in the Netherlands.
We first entered the wind business in 2001. Today we have interests in wind farms in the USA and the Netherlands with the estimated potential to generate over 5GWonce fully built.
Trading, Supply and Balancing the grid
In North America, for example, the power generation capacity we manage equates to enough power to supply more than 5 million homes In the UK, Limejump manages independent commercial assets remotely, helping firms that generate electricity - including via wind turbines and solar panels - or operate batteries to optimise their sales of electricity to the grid.
Our acquisition of MP2 Energy in 2017 significantly expanded our supply to commercial and industrial customers in North America.
We supply 100% certified renewable electricity - along with natural gas and smart home technology - to households in Britain.
