Offshore wind is a key growth area for Shell. Around the world, millions of people live inside 40 kilometres 25 miles of a coastline where winds are strong and steady, making offshore wind a great option for renewable power. The Egmond aan Zee wind farm off the Dutch coast is a joint venture between European utility company Nuon and Shell. The first large wind farm to be built in the North Sea, it comprises 36 wind turbines that produce enough renewable electricity for more than , Dutch households. That site will have the potential to generate 1.
Shell is also exploring new technology. We have partnered with Makani, an independent company within Alphabet, to bring their airborne wind power system to offshore environments. We are also a major shareholder in Tetraspar Demo - a new floating turbine foundation, that offers leaner manufacturing, assembly and installation leading to lower costs.
Shell first invested in US onshore wind in These are:.
The megawatt site consists of Mitsubishi turbines and can provide enough energy to power around 48, US homes. The Each year, the project is estimated to produce enough energy to power around 12, US homes.

Cabazon is also co-owned with Terra-Gen and features 62 turbines that can produce kilowatts. Each year, the project is estimated to produce enough electricity to power around 12, US homes. Since then, we have been investing, acquiring and supporting cleaner energy related projects around the world. Shell's activities in the electricity sector cover many countries.

Electricity can be generated from multiple sources, including natural gas — the cleanest-burning hydrocarbon — and renewables such as wind and solar. Shell believes the number of customers choosing solar power will continue to grow.
ZF Technology in Wind Turbines
We are developing solar projects in different parts of the world that are aligned with our customers' needs. Shell is actively developing commercial ways to provide a reliable electricity supply to more customers. Hydrogen could be an important low-carbon transport fuel in the future.
Shell is part of several global initiatives to encourage the adoption of hydrogen electric energy. Technology and new business models are disrupting the global energy system.
