Hydrogen is a versatile energy carrier that can play a significant role in the transition to a lower-carbon world. We are investing in producing decarbonised hydrogen for our own facilities and, in the future, for customers in industry and mobility where direct electrification is challenging.

At the end of 2022, we started to build Holland Hydrogen I in the Netherlands, one of the largest renewable hydrogen plants in Europe. The 200 megawatt electrolyser will supply the Shell Energy and Chemicals Park Rotterdam, where it will partially decarbonise our production of energy products like petrol, diesel and jet fuel. The plant will be powered by renewable energy from the Hollandse Kust Noord offshore wind farm (Shell interest 79.9%).

In Oman, we acquired a 35% interest in Green Energy Oman, which aims to produce renewable hydrogen, ammonia, methanol and synthetic fuels from seawater, powered by 25 gigawatts of solar and wind energy.

In Germany, we launched Hydrogen Pay-Per-Use, through which truck operators can hire hydrogen-fuelled trucks to explore transitioning their fleet from diesel to hydrogen and reduce their carbon emissions.

As a founding member of the H2 Accelerate consortium, Shell continues to work with partners to enable the use of hydrogen to decarbonise long-haul road transport across Europe.
