Increasing production of renewable energy is helping to make energy supplies greener.
However, a growing challenge is balancing the demand from users of the electricity grid with naturally unpredictable supplies of renewable energy from sources such as solar and wind.
By buying electricity when demand is low and production from solar and wind is high, Shell is helping to balance the electricity grid. This excess energy can then be used to produce green hydrogen from water in a process called electrolysis.
The hydrogen is then compressed and supplied as fuel for quiet hydrogen fuel-cell vehicles which only emit clean water vapour as they are driven. Hydrogen may also be used to power fuel cells which can supply electricity and heat for homes and businesses.
This is the official YouTube channel of Shell, a worldwide leader in the oil and gas industry. Our aim is to meet the energy needs of society in ways that are economically, socially and environmentally viable, now and in the future. We believe that oil and gas will remain a vital part of the global energy mix for many decades to come. Our role is to ensure that we extract and deliver these energy resources profitably and in environmentally and socially responsible ways.
Watch our technological and educational videos to gain a better understanding of how we do this. Our videos cover topics such as innovation, jobs and careers, investor relations information, motorsports, the Shell Eco-marathon, engineering and our top products such as V-Power.
