Energy has been central to the north side of the IJ for more than a hundred years. Amsterdam is with ETCA one of the three most important researchlocations for Shell worldwide. New ideas, technology and decades of experience come together here to meet the energy needs of today and tomorrow.

The former Shell Technology Centre Amsterdam (STCA) has started a new life as Energy Transition Campus Amsterdam (ETCA) in 2021. Cooperation between the business community and academics for the energy transition remains crucial. That is why Shell has decided to open the doors of the technology centre in Amsterdam to start-ups, scale-ups, knowledge institutes, academics and companies working on solutions for the energy transition.
