It is that part of Shell that includes integrated power, hydrogen, and nature-based solutions and carbon capture & storage. All of this intends to propel Shell closer towards its target of being a net-zero emissions business by 2050.

Shell’s Offshore Wind (OFW) business is seeking to build a global portfolio of commercially attractive offshore wind assets with significant scale and close links to power trading and marketing. The OFW team is uniquely positioned to drive the Energy Transition of Shell – offering more and cleaner energy solutions to customers.  For the generation of electricity, Shell is developing an offshore wind power business in the Americas, EMEA and Asia.
