Sell Energy Solutions: A Partner for Net Zero
Shell Energy’s Net Zero Program represents a pivotal step in the global journey towards a more sustainable and environmentally responsible future. This ambitious initiative is designed to align with the broader goal of achieving net zero emissions, a target that is increasingly recognized as crucial in the fight against climate change.
At the heart of the Net Zero Program is Shell Energy’s commitment to drastically reduce its carbon footprint. This involves a comprehensive strategy that encompasses not only the reduction of emissions from its operations and products but also a significant investment in renewable energy sources. By shifting towards solar, wind, and other renewable energies, Shell Energy is not only altering its own energy mix but also influencing the wider energy market.
Furthermore, the program includes innovative approaches to carbon capture and storage (CCS) technologies, which are essential for mitigating the impact of unavoidable emissions. Shell Energy is also exploring the potential of nature-based solutions, such as reforestation and wetlands restoration, to absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
The world is facing a climate crisis, and the need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions is urgent.
According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), global warming must be limited to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels to avoid the worst impacts of climate change. To achieve this goal, the world needs to reach net zero by 2050.
Net zero means that the amount of greenhouse gas emissions released into the atmosphere is balanced by the amount removed or offset.
This does not mean that emissions have to be zero, but that any remaining emissions are compensated by carbon removal or sequestration methods, such as planting trees, restoring wetlands, or using carbon capture and storage technologies.
However, reaching net zero is not an easy task. It requires a radical transformation of the energy systems that power our economies and societies.
All sectors and industries need to decarbonize or reduce their carbon footprint, by switching to cleaner and more efficient sources of energy, such as renewable energy, hydrogen, or biofuels. Moreover, they need to improve their energy efficiency, reduce their energy waste, and adopt circular practices that reuse and recycle materials.
This is where Sell Energy Solutions comes in. Sell Energy Solutions is a leading provider of integrated energy solutions and smart services that help customers manage their energy use and assets holistically. Sell Energy Solutions offers a range of products and services that enable customers to achieve net zero, such as:
Energy efficiency: Sell Energy Solutions helps customers optimize their energy consumption and reduce their operating costs by replacing and upgrading their energy-consuming systems, such as lighting, heating, cooling, and ventilation.
Energy management: Sell Energy Solutions helps customers monitor and control their energy use across their sites and facilities with automated controls and advanced analytics. This allows customers to identify and address energy inefficiencies, optimize their energy performance, and reduce their carbon emissions.
Backup generation: Sell Energy Solutions helps customers protect their business from power outages and operational disruption with backup generation solutions, such as batteries, generators, or microgrids. These solutions can also provide additional revenue streams for customers by participating in demand response programs, which help stabilize the grid by adjusting the electricity supply and demand.
Asset management and operation: Sell Energy Solutions helps customers get the most out of their energy assets, such as solar panels, wind turbines, or boilers, by providing technical, risk, and regulatory expertise. Sell Energy Solutions also helps customers optimize their facility efficiency, uptime, and utilization by maintaining and operating their energy assets.
EV charging optimization: Sell Energy Solutions helps customers join the electric revolution with affordable clean power and intelligent charging solutions for their electric vehicle (EV) fleet. Sell Energy Solutions helps customers plan, install, and manage their EV charging infrastructure, as well as optimize their charging schedules and costs.
On-site renewable energy: Sell Energy Solutions helps customers gain control over their energy costs, reduce their dependence on the grid, and lower their emissions with on-site renewable energy solutions, such as solar, wind, or biogas. Sell Energy Solutions helps customers design, finance, install, and operate their renewable energy systems, as well as sell any excess power back to the grid.
Sell Energy Solutions is a trusted partner for customers who want to make the net-zero transition. Sell Energy Solutions provides customers with:
Managed end-to-end service: Sell Energy Solutions takes care of everything from the initial assessment and design to the installation and operation of the energy solutions, ensuring a seamless and hassle-free experience for customers.
No upfront investment: Sell Energy Solutions offers flexible financing options that allow customers to pay for the energy solutions over time, based on their energy savings, usage, or performance. This eliminates the need for any upfront capital expenditure and reduces the financial risk for customers.
Maintenance included: Sell Energy Solutions provides ongoing maintenance and support for the energy solutions, ensuring their optimal performance and reliability. This also reduces the operational and maintenance costs for customers.
Qinghai Afforestation Project: This project aims to restore degraded land and prevent desertification in the Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau in China by planting trees and improving soil and water conservation. The project covers an area of over 2.1 million hectares and benefits more than 300,000 local farmers and herders. The project also reduces greenhouse gas emissions by sequestering carbon dioxide in the growing trees and avoiding the use of fossil fuels for heating and cooking. The project is certified by the Gold Standard and has been supported by Shell and other partners.
The Guatemalan Conservation Coast: This project protects nearly 60,000 hectares of threatened coastal forest in the Caribbean region of Guatemala, which is part of the Mesoamerican Biological Corridor and Mesoamerica Biodiversity Hotspot. The project supports hundreds of landowners, including local communities, to register and obtain land titles and implement sustainable land use practices. The project also provides alternative livelihoods for the local people, such as ecotourism, agroforestry, and healthcare services. The project reduces emissions from deforestation by over 700,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent annually. The project is certified by the Verified Carbon Standard and the Climate, Community, and Biodiversity Standards and has been supported by Ecosphere+ and other partners.
The Breathing Space Improved Cooking Stoves Programme: This project distributes energy-efficient cook-stoves to households in India, where cooking with traditional stoves causes indoor air pollution and health problems, especially for women and children. The project also reduces the consumption of non-renewable biomass and the emissions of greenhouse gases and black carbon. The project has reached over 200,000 households and reduced emissions by over 15,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent per year. The project is certified by the Gold Standard and has been supported by Carbon Footprint and other partners
