Global energy demand is rising and so are consumer expectations - more people want energy from cleaner sources. At Shell we are unlocking new energy sources and squeezing more from what we have. Together with others we are finding ways to lower our emissions and helping customers to do the same. In building a better energy future we all have a part to play: let's go.
Meeting rising energy demand will take a range of energy sources, from fossil fuels to renewables. But developing large-scale new sources of energy will take decades.
Energy efficiency is critical in building this low-carbon future. At Shell we are working to make our operations more energy efficient.
For our customers we offer more advanced fuels and lubricants, as well as driving tips, to make fuel stretch further.
Customers at our service stations want affordable transport fuels that are cleaner and more efficient. We offer new blends that help drivers go further with every fill-up, and our FuelSave Challenge programme provides driving tips to help them cut fuel consumption.
At Shell we are unlocking new energy sources and squeezing more from what we have. Together with others we are finding ways to lower our emissions and helping customers to do the same.
In the search for new ways to squeeze more from every drop of fuel we partner with technical experts from top motoring teams. We encourage a spirit of innovation through events such as the Shell Eco-marathon, where students compete to design the most fuel-efficient car.
We find innovative ways to provide our customers with cleaner, more efficient energy. Our spending on research and development is higher than any of our competitors.
In biofuels we are the world's biggest distributor. As a technology leader, we work with others to develop advanced biofuels. We invest in developing vital technology to capture emissions from power plants and other industrial sites and store it safely underground.
Technology is also helping us to open up new sources of natural gas - the cleanest-burning fossil fuel - and to squeeze more from existing oil fields.
As the world's demand for energy continues to rise, delivering a secure supply will require tapping a variety of sources. We are opening up new energy frontiers and we are recovering more from existing fields where up to two-thirds of oil can be left behind.
