What's the role?
The New Energy business is investing in the attractive business opportunities emerging in data-enabled, software-based mobility and energy services. Opportunities that use smart phone technology, increased data analytics and connectivity, and that can help Shell's core business by using our global reach, physical footprint, customer relationships and brand.
We have developed a portfolio of early stage Digital Businesses. Each consists of a venture lead and a team of up to 20 people. Alongside this we have set up a small ‘scanning team’ which has been critical in finding the right digital opportunities, the right partners to work with, and the external insights we need about the rapidly changing environment.
This team also keeps a database of potentially attractive companies and works closely with Shell Technology Ventures (STV) to look at potential minority investment opportunities for learning and strategic purposes. Taking a market led approach is important given the speed of change.
