ETCA and the energy transition (locally)
Over the coming decades, society will face a worldwide challenge. While society has to emit fewer greenhouse gases, energy consumption will increase due to the growing world population and increasing prosperity. The pace of the energy transition will vary from country to country. In the Netherlands, it’s about the more efficient use of energy and access to cleaner energy, the core of a large part of the research activities within ETCA. Read here what Shell in Amsterdam does in addition to the research work to contribute to the energy transition in the Metropolitan Region of Amsterdam.
Production of green hydrogen and shared vehicles at ETCA
Driving on hydrogen is one way of reducing the environmental impact of mobility. Hydrogen also plays a major role in industry, for example as a chemical building block for manufacturing products, but also as an option for processes that require high temperatures.
ENERGY TRANSITION CAMPUS AMSTERDAM (ETCA)
Energy has been key at ETCA for more than a hundred years. ETCA is one of the three largest Shell research centres worldwide. This is where new ideas, technology and decades of experience come together to meet the energy needs of today and tomorrow.
The Dutch Energy Transition and Shell
Shell has taken steps towards a cleaner future in the Netherlands in recent years. As an energy company, we want to fulfil this role in the future. We are therefore innovating and investing heavily in ways to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. We do this together with our partners, because energy transition is team sport. (Dutch)
