The worldâs energy system is in the midst of a fundamental and disruptive transition that will have a direct on impact how energy is produced, processed, transmitted, distributed and consumed. The energy mix of the future will see a substantial penetration of renewables generated from solar, wind, biomass and other natural sources. Conventional oil and gas will remain part of the energy mix but with a relatively lower share and a sharper focus on its generating it at the lowest possible CO2 footprint. Electrification of demand will also play out over the course of the coming decades. This presentation will provide a perspective on how Shell has positioned itself to thrive in the energy transition, especially with respect to its current and planned future operations in the US Gulf Coast. It will also discuss the role of technology in shaping near-term projects such as integrated solar PV and offshore wind, mid-term projects in hydrogen, biofuels, and energy systems integration and storage, and long-term projects designed to make synthetic fuels, utility scale storage systems, and the use of natural gas as an advantaged feedstock to make energy products. The presentation will tie all of the above together and demonstrate that it is possible to provide the world with more and cleaner energy.
