SHELL NEW ENERGY CHALLENGE

Together with Rockstart and YES!Delft, Shell is looking for startups active in the energy transition. Over the coming decades, the world will need much more energy to meet growing demand to enable a decent quality of life for people across the world. But this is only one part of the story. We also need to produce all that energy while emitting much less CO2. That is the challenge we have to meet — as society. As science. As companies and as consumers. This is the key driver behind the energy transition.

HOW WILL THIS TRANSITION UNFOLD?

This industry could play a crucial role in powering this progress. What needs to be done in this century — and sooner rather than later — is to accelerate new businessmodels and enable new innovative technologies. Integrated energy solutions that are effective. That are profitable. And can survive at scale. Preferably at global scale.

THE CHALLENGE

The third edition of the European wide New Energy Challenge is a tough competition that measures and pushes the boundaries of the promise and the proof of early stage startups active in energy transition. Especially startups working at the crossroad of integrated energy solutions and Smart Energies, reducing the climate impact in a future energy system.

The New Energy Challenge 2018 calls for European and Israeli start-ups to come forward and work with Shell. Shell is a strong believer of cooperation when aiming for a fully functioning zero-carbon energy system over time, which can only succeed when working together.
